Alpine Newt

On one of our walks last weekend, Kali and me encountered this little Alpine Newt on the streets.

He was a few minutes away from the lake they live in, so I picked him up and carried him over. This lake is only a lake in summer, it is drained in autumn and then used as a big parking space in winter (because we need a lot of space for cars in winter, but don’t want huge, unused concrete areas in summer. Pretty clever, eh?).

The lake is only now being filled with water again, so I put the newt down on some rocks, where he could go into the water himself and find shelter easily.
