These have been around Gobions lake for a while but only just got pictures of them - not your common or garden duck.

I met this at Gobions today, just a few feet from a footpath, basking in the sun. I estimate a length of three feet which could indicate a female grass snake. Surprisingly several dogs had walked by just before I arrived. I had the sun behind me but it moved its head into the shade to keep an eye on me.

Nice to know they're still about. When I were a lad in the 'sixties it was a rare expedition to Peplins wood or down to the swallow holes that did not turn up one or more of these lovely animals. Frowned upon nowadays, but I used to catch them, several on one particular morning. Generally, they quickly got used to handling and were happy to curl up in my pullover sleeve. I'm still alert to them when out and about, but haven't seen one for years.

The Gobions wood hermit is ready for the holiday - maybe short of fresh socks and a Christmas pudding - but at least the tree is done.
