A lot of our visitors are intrigued when they see the grass snakes swimming across the lake and comment on the fact they do not see many in the UK. We have a lot of grass snakes here and they are totally harmless, unless you’re a mouse or a slug, so we ask people to leave them alone and just enjoy nature.
We also have slow worms that are actually lizards, so I have done a short video to show everyone who does not know the difference. Tried to find the big grass snakes but they were, as always, well hidden but managed to find this baby slow worm and grass snake.
