The ultimate Nature Garden accolade (I think) - a Grass Snake has visited!
Unfortunately - it decided to dine while it was here -
Puffing up didn't save the poor thing -
25 minutes later, as I was sat outside the same thing happened again!! Not sure if it was the same snake or another one. There are 2 rows of houses behind us before you hit the nature reserve & river, so the snake(s) had certainly traveled to get here.
My main worry is that it'll decimate the pond (my newts!!), but it's a real privilege to have it visit & to see it in action so close up....
