Snakes alive....

Just seen a simply whopping grass snake in my garden (miles bigger than the tiddler shown above).
It was basking in the sun next to my strawberries and slowly slithered away when I got to within 6-8 feet.

Sadly I didn't have my camera with me (don't usually carry it around when I'm digging) and there's no way in the world that I'm telling Paddy or he'll never volunteer to help dig & rotovate the piece of land I've just rented from the commune (800 square metres on a 99 year lease for €100 pa but that's another story).

Remember that grass snakes DO bite, just that they are not poisonous
