I'm planning a trip to Fingringhoe Wick Monday or Tuesday this week. One of those sites I know is a reptile hot spot but never spent a lot of time at. If anyone wants to meet up for a poke around either on Monday or Tuesday let me know.

I did visit a couple of times last year, grassie crossed the road on the drive in, common lizards everywhere but yet to take a good look round for snakes. Not a site I know so will be a scope for likely spots with hopefully some sightings along the way.

Hi Gemma
if this is where you are going? don't go on Monday as they are still on Winter opening times.

Hi Gemma

Thanks for this.

I might just join you. It would be nice to get out of the office and away from the paperwork for a few hours. Haven't been to Wick for so long but it's a fab place to go.

Will send you a PM a bit later with contact details etc if that is ok as I don't want to put them online here.

Well it was misty all day, just the one adder reported in 'Essex Adders 2011' thread.

Plan is to be there again at 09:00 Saturday 19th March - when the weather should be better. Rob's already said he might be able to make it, anyone else?
