The slow worms are back! A team of ecologists are going to carry out a survey of the number of slow worms on our site. If you see mats like these, please don’t move them – they are part of the survey. We have tried to locate the mats where they were last year so hopefully there are no surprises, however they are not marked “slow worms” as they were last time. Thanks for your help with this.
NOTE – Slow worms look like baby snakes, but are actually legless lizards and cannot hurt you! They do eat slugs among other things, so are the gardeners friend.
