Heeeerro Keith!
Yes mate, plenty there usually, I think it was just the weather that's pushed the herps into hiding. Anyone else seen much these past two days?

Hi All

If you go to the No Grass Snakes thread under Grass Snake you can see a few comments there re an apparent lack of grass snakes and also adders - I'm finding the latter very hard to spot at some usually reliable sites in S England

Cheers

Will

Nice one Paul!

It was rather a spooky silence out there today though, don't you think? Aside from the sound of skidding micras and moaning pensioners that is

I was out saturday, instead of looking for reptiles, I was looking for Orchids.   Despite  it being 3 o clock in the afternoon, the temp was well in excess of 20 deg C I saw 2 Zl and heard numerous 'rustlings' in the grass.   Will have to meet up soon for a midweek herping trip.
