In an amateur fashion I've recorded/observed garden badgers, bats, birds, crab spiders, herps - including pond life. I've seen behaviour you won't read about in books, even going against what you can read in books. As you say Chubsta you never stop learning. There is nothing like observing really.
Going back to newts eating spawn...I fished a new clump out of my pond the other year to hand rear it and right in the midst of the clump was a palmate newt.

Quite a few frogs hanging about pond-side earlier (as usual).
Thought this was a striking individual with it's bold leg bands and almost blue-black tinge.

First time ever I have had overwintering tadpoles.
About 10-15 from clumps I hand reared in a container.
Only one has back legs, so they are some way off development yet.
Will be interesting to see how big they grow, as I heard overwinterers can grow quite large.
