Be careful of newts when walking/cycling on The Common

Be careful of the newts when you walk or cycle on The Common. They have started moving from their hibernation sites.
With the warmer, wet weather and the days getting noticeably longer, the newts have started moving out from their hibernation sites across The Common. Please be careful and watch where you are walking or cycling as at least 3 were killed in close proximity on the cross path very recently. It seems that cycle routes are a known hazard for newts. Thanks to Howard Rose for the photo and link. (we decided not to show Howard’s photo of a squashed one).
