The Slow Worm…again!

Name: Slow Worm

Place: Powerstock Common/RSPB Arne/Durlston Country Park

Date: May/June 2017

Time: 11.00am – 5.00pm

Weather: Sunny/Cloudy

Last year we were absolutely gutted that we had never seen a slow worm. This year has certainly made up for it. In total, in the space of a week, we have seen almost 30 slow worms. Literally no stone goes un-turned when it comes to looking for slow worms and the anticipation and excitement is the same felt as a child on Christmas morning. One of the most docile creatures I have ever encountered; curious and intriguing. What I like the most is the way their tails wrap tightly around my fingers. Can not sing their praises enough.
