Grass Snake Porn

While photgraphing the Wheatear at Cossington Meadows I met up with Terry Sherwood. We wandered on to Barber’s Rough to look for the Grasshopper Warbler that had been reported. Hearing it we headed over to the small pool to see if we could find the bird. As we approached the pool we disturbed a large female Grass Snake which shot off into the pool. A few minutes later I heard the distinctive sound of another snake in the reed. Sure enough we soon had another large female.

Terry and I were both about to give up and head home when I spotted this female being mated by a small male. She also had another male around her who moved off only to be replaced by this male.

Sorry for the poor quality but due to the sun I struggled to see the snakes on the screen. It was truly fantastic to witness so much snake action in the UK. Brilliant wild experiences really are on your doorstep.
