I had two very nice visitors yesterday morning.
Throughout the summer a roe deer mother with her twins, born this spring, has stayed in the area. Everyone has observed them, but me. I had almost given up the hope to see them, but finally, yesterday they showed up, and I managed to get them on tape. I didn't see their mother, but she was hopefully nearby. I was on the second floor, filming through the window, and they were ca 50 meters away.

How wonderful, Lussi!

Oh yes they are!!
I hope they, and their mother, survive the hunting season that starts soon :unsure: (maybe they are too young...)

Spatz: The gravedigger is a pretty one.
Lussi: It's so wonderful and so special to see so nice twins through your window. Now I'm a bit envious. I have to drive 1 minute with my bicycle to the den of the foxes :laugh: . You was veeeeery patient and now you were a lucky one to see them and made such a nice record of them :loveshower: .

They are cute little monsters.

It seems the same species can look very different.

good morning. :hi:
I would say that is a triton, salamanders are black and yellow with very bright.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_salamander
the triton the Montseny is a highly endangered species and is only found in the Montseny massif, mountain which lies between the cities of barcelona and girona :whistling:

I don`t think its mountain newts (Bergmolche), they look different and all of them have dots. See here for description: http://www.froschnetz.ch/arten/bergmolch.htm

I believe they are lizards, some of them have this striped back.

In Spatz' second picture you can see spots/markings that are a bit similar to those in the upper photo

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpine_newt
the page in German has more photos than in English

I do think it is newt because of the shape of the head, but the exact species is very difficult because they vary so much depending on water phase or land phase.
