I found two dead (what I think) are Grass Snakes less than a mile apart on a circular walk with the dogs around Spittal this morning. I took a photo (with my phone) of the second one. I estimate both were well over 80cm long and looked in good condition. In my 27 years living here and walking the paths and road around Spittal I've only encountered one other and that was in my garden.
Can any of you Naturalists offer an explanation for today's coincidence?
Also can you confirm it IS a grass snake? (Click on the picture to enlarge it) REMEMBER TO SEE THE PHOTOS YOU HAVE TO HAVE REGISTERED TO THE FORUM AND BE LOGGED ON
