My First Grass Snake Photos!

This year I have spent a good deal of time searching for grass snakes (Natrix natrix) without any luck. My past encounters with the species have always been accidental and never when I was armed with a camera in hand... Until today.

I had arranged to meet Tim Hamlett who had kindly offered to show me around one of his sites in Staffordshire, but the weather was far from perfect - with persistent rain. We searched the banks and their usual basking areas to no avail, then a search under refugia eventually resulted in two juvenile specimens - both in slough.
