snakes alive!

Yesterday I saw a grass-snake on the edge of the meadow near the long grass by the wild pear tree in the far left hand corner. It was basking in the sun - which came out all too briefly. Unfortunately I did not have a camera with me. The following website has a good photo of one and some interesting facts and advice about wildlife in gardens -

In 2007 the grass-snake was included in the updated UK Biodiversity Action Plan as a species in need of conservation and greater protection.

Has anyone else spotted one? We have had out allotment for over 20 years and this is the first one I've seen.
