Below is a male Gt. Crested Newt that dose not occur in my garden ponds, but is found widely in Bedfordshire. About ten years ago I took part in a BNHS survey of Bedfordshire ponds and managed to find them in most of the larger ponds I searched.

Above the very striking belly colour of a male in breeding condition.
