Slow worms

I was delighted to see a Slow Worm back in the garden today......first sighting this year adult approx 10" long.

A lovely day today and he/she is having a well deserved sunbathimageimage

    We have Slow Worms down here in Cornwall. Today, as I was planting bunching onions, I came across the tinyes, weeniest little Stick Insect, not even an inch long. Tried to move it to the brambles on my trowel but it kept jumping off, then dissapeared. I have had adult Stick Insects in my Blackberries but I have never seen one this small.

    Can't say I've ever had Stick insects in the garden but I always used to look forward to the Praying Mantis when I lived in France.

    Used to enjoy the Lizards too...even in Devon...... but don't get them here in Somersetimage

    It was good to see,image

  • Never seen a live slow worm here - although they do live in Gsy. apparently. No moles, foxes, hares, squirrels or badgers here though.

    I'd never seen one til we offered a home to a few that had be made homeless by a 'developers'. 

    I was pleased to see at least one is still around after a couple of yearsimage
