Back from Symi

Despite some unexpected bad weather (at least 4 wasted days!) I had a great time on Symi and managed a list of 19 species, including a few species on nearby Rhodes. We also recorded a new species of snake for Symi which was a nice bonus. A last minute highlight was finding this beautiful Ottoman viper (Montivipera xanthina) of a metre in length just hours before we left the island. Report on the way soon…
