From a Moorland site that has definitely three and possibly four of the reptile species we have in Derbyshire I went to check at the weekend to confirm my suspicion that as well as Common Frog & a large Common Toad population there was Palmate Newt. Well there were palmate newts but also easily found half a dozen of these (but all males)
