cheers dave.

those pesky slowworms were the only thing stopping me from seeing all four in the same day for the first time! never seen a local one although they are supposed to be around in a few sites.

i know...it's funny how these things work out isn't it. i'm thinking of putting down some symathetic looking refugia where there are supposed to be slowworms locally to see if i can attract some.

we drove through llangollen sunday. we even had lunch at a pub about 400yds from the hill but i was banned from going for even a quick 5-minute look.
