UK Newt Survey Specialists
There are three species of newt native to the UK, these are smooth newt, palmate newt and the European Protected Species of great crested newt. Newts hibernate in places such as log piles or amongst the roots of trees during the winter and return to aquatic habitats during the spring to breed. During other times of the year newts use areas such as grassland, woodland and scrub to forage and find shelter. Great crested newts are legally protected not only by the Wildlife and Countryside Act (1981) but also by the Habitat Regulations (1994) due to their scarcity at a European level. This makes it an offence to kill, injure, capture or disturb great crested newts or to damage or destroy their breeding sites or terrestrial habitats.
