became entangled we took a couple of pictures, to hep ID it and then put it back. It's belly was a fiery red colour. Having checked on line and in a few books, I'm convinced it's a Great Crested Newt - perhaps immature? Tell me I'm a fool!
Great Crested Newts have a yellow and white belly. If your newt had a fiery red colour belly then it is most likely to be a male common newt.
But a viewable picture would help with a positive ID.
