    How many tadpole are there? if you look real closely, there is one tadpole (or polywog) that has two tails.

    There'll be a fair few less once those newts have had a few. Nice contrast with the stone.

    I think the "newts" are larger, more developed tadpoles (more on the way to being frogs) - that's what they looked like to me, but I could be wrong.

    No, they are definitely newts and the tadpoles are not their young as they have no external gills. Them's lunch!

    I stand corrected. Thank you for the ID.

    That was a tad enlightening John, fine colours though.
