Grass Snakes in Drakes Broughton

By Kevin McGee.

I am pleased to report the presence of the Grass Snake, Natrix natrix, at Drakes Broughton orchard. On 3.6.00. I found a small one of about 10 inches in length sun bathing at the path-side. Much larger individuals were disturbed at Mill Meadow, Drakes Broughton, on 2.7.00. (about 2 feet in length), and on 10.9.00. (about 4 feet in length, quite the largest Iíve ever seen).
