    Default Slow-worm

    Up the Dunbeath Strath for a lovely Spring walk and came across this lovely fella on the path, sunning himself!

    If the weather is nice in the hols we might go hunting for them!
    Observation only though...not capture and keep or capure and release incase anyone has funny ideas about what we want to do.
    See and photograph and look up on the net etc..not even touch!
    A wee science/nature project with photos for the kids as they are interested in all that moves.
    Any good areas to try to find them?
    I know they like to hide under corrugated iron/black plastic/compost bins etc but known sightings would be handy...
