Seen in our back garden at about 2 pm yesterday (21st), first on some cut branches in the corner of the garden. As I tried to photograph it, it made off to the corner of the garden behind a flower pot, and then along the edge of the garden and out of sight.

Grass snake

If you have an out-of-the way spot to do it, create a small compost heap in a sunny position. Put some logs at the bottom to provide access. This provides a egg-laying opportunity which grass snakes are often lacking.
