Posted: 30 Mar 2007 Topic: COMMoN & SAND LIZARDS & THE WEATHER



I wonder what this weather and the  changes from one day  to the next  as  it has been lately  from warm almost sunny days back to sub zero freezing winter days instead of a normal gradualy warming up period , what affect  will it have on the breeding pattern on local lizard populations whos breeding cycles must be getting confused as to hibernate or stay awake with these suddern drastic tempeture changes of recent?. because it certainly is affecting me.    keith

 HI ALL with the year running out ,        It would be interesting to see who can have the last sighting of a snake or lizard  after October up to Dec this year.as many years ago I found a grass snake in a comatose almost frozen solid state state in thick hoar frost in late afternoon around the end of November in the good old days before all this global warming & we really did have cold winters.Keith

ALAS NO LONGER . BUT THERE ARE STILL SOME SPOTS WITH  ISOLATED COLONIES WITHIN THE CONFINES OF KETTLEBURY HILL & YAGDEN  AREA  ( WHERE YOU TAKE  THE RISK OF BEING SHOT ON SITE BY THE SAS FOR LURKING AROUND HIGHLY SENSITIVE UNISEX ARMY POSTS THAT DOMINATE THE SITES  )  BUT FOR HOW LONG ?  AS A PROTECTED SPECIES HOW CAN ENGLISH NATURE WHO I REPORTED THIS  ALLOW THIS TO CONTINUE ITS OBVIOUSE THEY DONT GIVE STUFF BUT CONTINUE TO BE A FUNDED NON EFECTIVE QUANGO ON PROJECTS THAT SUIT THE PC HEALTH & SAFETY DESK WALLERS THAT DONT EVEN GET OUT TO VISIT THE SITES  THAT ARE DISSAPEARING FOR EVER  . .       &nbs p;& ; ; ;am p;am p;am p;am p;nb sp;     FROM  KEITH BENNETT AGILIS39141.0759606482
