The scent of Yorkshire’s Grass snakes..

Today we drove to the other side of the hill to meet with Carl and explore some of his local spots. He has put a number of refugia down at potential sites for Grass snakes (Natrix natrix), such as derelict sites no longer in use by people which contain ponds and other suitable habitats. We were able to find two large specimens under his refugia so it is working well! Furthermore, we saw four Water voles and a good number of Great crested newts (Triturus cristatus).
