The snake was very lethargic and may have been injured. I have not come across many snakes so cannot be sure. It was found in the middle of a path often used by dog walkers.
After this photo was taken we moved the snake into longer grass, it didn't move very quickly but was still alive,
Looks pretty sick to me...
Are you sure this snake was alive? It looks dead, if not dead then it is close to death. It has the sunken look to the body and the position is un-natural.
It is a grass snake though. Refer the following iSpot observation.

This snake shows typical actions of playing dead. It is a defensive act. as the snake was not able to move away quickly it played dead. I see this often as the North Suffolk amphibian and Reptile group representative
