A discreet way to sun-bathe

28th March 2011, Monday

The past few warm days have seen reptiles emerging in our Northiam garden.  Three slow-worms were basking today.

I have left a corner of long grass this year, which, despite the sparrows pulling at it for nesting material, still provides good cover.  Actually spotting the reptiles is made easier with a piece of strategically placed roof-felt, providing a safe warm shelter.
