No, this is an adult specimen not from manhole, and from a different location.
I was there with friends. We took out every animal we were able to catch, and released them. We released balkan terrapins to nearby streams.
Hey Martin,Are you sure, that this larvae is alpine salamander? I thought alpine salamanders give birth to fully metamorphosed youngs, so I think you find fire salamander.
I think normally house martins have no collars, so the bird in the first picture is a sand martin, and there are two different animals in these pictures.
It is a Serin, Serinus serinus. Yellowhammer is similar but not related to this bird.
Very unusual color pattern. I discussed it with some Hungarian amphibian expert.
Probably it is a grey seal, Halichoerus gripus, or not? I'm just thinking.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grey_seal
It's moor frog, Rana arvalis. Common frog males and agile frog males also getting a little bit darker at the breeding season, but not as blue as moor frog males.
PieterColpaert: No problem :)Ursula: Congrats for this capture!
