Note the disintive and diagnostic yellow and black collar together with the black markings along the body length. It is unfortunate in the picture above, that there is a blade of grass acoss the snakes eye. Grass snakes have a circular pupil. Adders have a 'slit' pupil.

 

July 2008 - And not to be outdone, Chris & Jenny Rodgers sent in these pictures of a Grass Snake they spotted.

Grass Snakes are clearly relatively common in this area.
