I’ve just returned from a visit to the Dodecanese island of Symi, one I have visited many times before. This was not a herping trip as at this time of year the island is one of the hottest places in Greece with temperatures close to 40 degrees. Instead I spent time with friends and spent most of the days at my favourite beach. I did do a couple of searches and found some interesting species, above all the hardest species to find on the island: the Levant Skink (Trachylepis auratus).

Next week off to Morocco with Carl and Gertjan and then back to idealic Epano Koufonissi in the Cyclades in October for a secluded retreat.
