The slow worm survey produced a young grass snake, probably one of last year’s hatchlings. It was tucked under a  survey mat in Brunts Field, in the warm and dry. It vanished fairly fast after we lifted the mat, but not before DKG took its picture.

Slow worm survey

The Friends,  on a wet and squelchy day last week, prepared to survey the park’s slow worm population. Here is DKG’s report:

 

 

“Mats were cut and numbered for the slow worm survey with 40 mats laid in 4 areas (10 per area). These will be monitored in the coming weeks once we have some warmth and hopefully some dry weather. Areas covered included Brunts Field, Kestrel Field and Ash copse in Sheep field. The Village Green mats will be laid out during the next work party as the area was too sodden to reach.”
