Took this photo this pm. Warm and sunny and the perfect sunbathing spot
Nice one, you beat me this year Philippa.
Sorry about that Nut but such a lovely surprise - particularly as I was working in that area and not thinking about Slow worms in particular I know we have several here and they do breed in the garden. Just need the Grass snake to appear and then that's me sorted
Lovely to see them out and about. I found one on top of the compost in one of my daleks yesterday. I need to empty out the daleks to extract the usable compost and reload the immature stuff but will wait for a warmer day to make sure the slow worms are mobile enough to get themselves out of the way temporarily.
I have had a garden for nigh on 40 years, have 2 small wildlife ponds a decent sized logpile, and numerous other wildlife friendly areas, but i have never seen any reptile, plenty of amphibians. but i would love to see a grass snake, even if my frog population would be up in arms.

I'm almost the same as you 2ponds - we have one full pond and one on the cusp, amphibians and wildlife areas too but we have never seen a slow worm and I know they exist on the island, just not in our garden. We live in hope!
