I am considering a new career as a wildlife photographer. No, not really, but this is a picture of a slow-worm that has been in much the same spot in the garden for a week or more.
He - or she - is a very welcome guest given that the staple diet is slugs - and the other morning he was curled around one, presumably his breakfast. Meanwhile, in the drive was this creature.
Either another slow-worm or a grass snake, but it looked a bit long for a slow-worm. Then I took Fern onto the Downs. For a springer spaniel, the recipe for total happiness requires long grass, a tennis ball - and somebody to throw it!
