Three tiny Grass Snakes

During a walk around Ebernoe discussing bat monitoring yesterday, Tony Hutson and I very nearly stepped on this young Grass Snake. Tony soon spotted two more about the same size and we were quite surprised to find them there. They were on a very narrow path with tall and dense Holly on either side and it seemed strange that the animals would be able to get warm enough with such limited sunlight. Perhaps that was why they were so obliging? I also heard yet another singing Firecrest on the edge of the northern pylon ride.
Also, Tony spotted this fungi, which I am pretty sure is the RDB Pseudocraterellus undulatus. I know this from Ebernoe where two years ago it was abundant but the fungi here looks younger and smaller. 

I am currently taking a breather from the aquatic molluscs course that I am on here at Flatford Mill in Suffolk. This time though I have access to a wireless network so I can tell my wildlife adventures in as close to real time as is practically possible...
