Sunday 22nd July

A visit today for the Wildlife Day which seemed to go down really well as the weather held. I managed to find a Slow Worm (amongst 3 I found in the east scrub) to add to the moths on show and the mini beast hunts came up with some interesting finds including a smart Brown Argus, Small Copper and several Gatekeeper. Also a male Banded Demoiselle and inumerable blue damselfly sp. GRASS SNAKE SLOUGH MEASURING 2.5 feet FOUND IN THE EAST SCRUB LAST WEEK

A quick walk out across the field behind my house late afternoon - a singing Yellowhammer, 3 Skylark, 6 Goldfinch, 10 Gatekeeper, clouds of Meadow Brown and a few large white

That`s a sizeable Grass Snake Steve. Must go and check one of my local sites for any that are preparing to shed their skins. This particular site has got quite a few discarded corrugated sheets, perfect for that purpose.

Hi Steve
This is exactly the colour of the snake I wrote about. Thanks for the info and the excellent blog, I always look forward to the next episode!
