Back in Corfu
Tomorrow I’m off to Corfu for a week, this time in the company of Andrew Gray, curator of Herpetology at Manchester Museum. Although it will be very hot and humid Corfu is so lush that even in mid summer it is possible for some nice observations. No specific species targets as I have found almost all of them on previous trips to the island. A new locality for Sand Boa (Eryx jaculus) will be checked, but we are unlikely to be successful with this secretive snake in the summer. Andrew, being an amphibian specialist is eager to see some frogs and toads, maybe the extremely humid conditions will help us in this respect, as it did for me in the same conditions a few weeks previously in Zakynthos. Back in a week so a report and photos will be posted.
