1166 Great crested newt  Triturus cristatus
This waterbody in north-east England, created by coal-mining activity, has consistently yielded high counts of great crested newt Triturus cristatus in recent years. The pond is surrounded by wooded slopes, with adjacent anthropogenic habitat associated with the previous mining activities. A large new pond was created recently to help support the population, which was previously reliant on a single breeding site.
