Cold blooded....

As the weather is getting warmer it is getting easier to see some of our cold blooded wildlife: Reptiles

Our commons are a great habitat for several species. As they can feel vibrations they will usually be gone before you will see them. Most commonly you will see some lizards whizzing into the undergrows or discover a slow worm when working in the garden. But if you get out early , know where to look and walk very carefully you might be able to even see an adder warming up in the sun before it is slithering away to go hunting.
