Pond Dipping

Went pond dipping in the garden and came up with a newtlet. I was delighted but my Lithuanian housemate looked sceptical.

“What is a newt?” she asked peering into the murk of the pond.

“Like a small dragon,” I explained. “A small swimming dragon.”

She looked unconvinced. “Why don’t you get some goldfish?”

I will make a naturalist of her yet.
