Our spring is a hidden green dell in the field to the West of the house. The old maps, and the older men, talk of it running all year. In the last ten years it has only ever run in winter and spring, rushing cool, clear water into a walk-in stone-clad well. In early March there were Marbled Newts (Triturus marmoratus) as young black slivers, and this adult. Pure water newts.
