Back Up North to find a Grass Snake
Following on from the 7 species of reptiles seen in Dorset I completed the full set with Grass SnakeNatrix natrix on my home patch. Again Matt came across and we headed off to the nearest Grass Snake spot and quickly saw 2 perhaps 3, unlike last time they were in good condition having recently shed. We then headed over to an Adder Vipera berus site and found 2 males with a neonate CommonLizard Zootoca vivipara en-route. The next day we headed over to Merseyside to look for Sand Lizards but could only find juvenile Common Lizard, Smooth NewtLissotriton vulgaris, Common FrogRana temporaria and Common ToadBufo bufo. We also saw a few interesting insects.
