Grass Snake - 1st of 2017
Caught sight of my resident Grass snake 2 days ago having a sunbath. Took me by surprise as I was really looking out for the Slow worms. By the time I'd gawped and said "Hello" and run in to get my camera, he/she had slithered off into the undergrowth.
Only a couple of weeks ago, I spotted 2 juvenile snakes - one in the pond and the other just entering it.
I'd thought it a wee bit early but we have had a long spell of hot and dry weather.
