A nice gent brought a few Great Crested newts in for us to look at, he is licensed to own & handle them of course.
We managed to find a few newts trying to dodge the torches, & I managed to borrow a net off somebody & scooped a Female Palmate Newt out for all to see.
A few of the younger ones seemed to really enjoy letting it sit in their cupped hands, where it seemed to be really relaxed, enjoying the warmth from our bodies I guess.
Robin had some Bat detection gear & quite a few bats were zipping about the Bailey Bridge on the way back, where surprisingly there wasn't any screaming due to all the big spiders lurking on the bridges metalwork!
The ladies didn't seem to be afraid either! hahaha.
Margaret has passed a few pictures for adding so:
