Observation - Thin on the ground - UK and Ireland. Description: Two rather scruffy Grass Snakes cautiously offering a portion of themselves to the afternoon sun alo

Two rather scruffy Grass Snakes cautiously offering a portion of themselves to the afternoon sun along a sheltered, ramshackle stone wall in the graveyard. A very quiet place near home where it's rare to see another person during this time of isolation & personal distancing. Hard to spot the snakes before they spot you, & to then sneak up with a phone camera. Hard but possible. Grass Snake encounters are always thrilling.
