Look, don't touch and then leave it in peace.

I have to disagree with that - 99% sure it's an alpine newt. I've never seen a blue crestie, whereas alpines usually have this bluish/grey tinge. Also, I've never seen a crestie without the black belly blotches (although there is a lot of variation and sometimes the pattern is reduced), whereas alpines often have a plain orange belly, like the photo.
