Stumbled across a grass snake, don’t see them as often these days.
It sure wasn’t hanging around
I’ve never seen a snake in the wild. Nice.
Cool capture there Gaz! Where was this? I often see Grass Snakes swimming across lakes and ponds while fishing but rarely see them on land like that
I wouldn’t either!
When I spent a lot of weekend time down on the Dorset coast, would love to go out early mornings in the spring, on sunny mornings, and look for Adders out warming themselves. They are SO shy … getting pics was a real challenge.
On the Humber estuary bank just outside the village I live. I last saw one sometime last year
Last one I saw was in Dalby forest, laid across a mountain bike track
At my last house, in the spring, used to get loads of them in massive mating gatherings.
How small/big is the snake in the first post?
I can’t tell from the surroundings.
There are grass blades. And a daisy
It was about 1 1/2 ft long
Wheres the social distancing and masks???
Animals don’t give a shit. As don’t the protesters in Trafalgar Square today. Each to his own eh?
I spent a year living over in the States in 08 and would see them almost daily.
Never been lucky enough to see them in this country though.
Great pics. Unfortunately the only ones I’ve seen here in on Northumberland moors have been splatted by cars . Though still usually wear boots (sometimes gaiters) if walking through deep heather
Grass snakes don’t bite.
Granted, sorry, I should have clarified that what we’ve seen are actually adders (zig zag markings on back)…which do
