Great crested newts are widespread across lowland England and occupy a range of habitats, in rural, suburban and urban areas. Although they breed in ponds, they spend much of their life on land. So there is potential for great crested newts to be present on many development sites. This course covers the ecology and survey techniques through a combination of classroom and field surveys.
