Grass Snake

Grass Snake
Today, I visited 2 of our local Country Parks, Consall and Deep Hayes,  to try and find my first Damselfly or Dragonfly of the year. I was unsuccessful in that quest, possibly because of the cold easterly breeze that is blowing today. This Grass Snake (Natrix natrix) made up for my disappointment by posing nicely in the Heron Lake at Consall Park!
