the first slowworm of 2011

In Uncategorized on February 18, 2011 at 7:43 am

The local adders haven’t been spotted just yet. It was great to check the local churchyard yesterday and find an adult female slowworm. Not bad for the time of year. Its the earliest I have recorded slowworm.

This site produces the largest number of slowworms I have ever recorded. Around 150 animals in just 10 mins!

As the weather warms further animals will emerge. Normally it is thought that male reptiles emerge before females obviously this slowworm had not read the text book.
