Interesting link.

"the council has a snake patrol."

I wonder what this means! Relocation at best I guess.

Check out this link to a news article from a South Wales Newspaper - where it mentions that the presence of Adders in a grass verge was amongst the reasons for cutting the habitat back. Unbelievable!

That is the standard beeb web site amphibian piccy.. I've seen it loads of times. If you drop them an email they will change it to something more appropriate like a common frog or something.

I have found a BBC article relating to Agile Frogs in Jersey - I wonder if the agile frog pictured had an off day with all those warts?

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/jersey/4673745.stm

I am not sure if they have put a correction on this story I did have a chuckle at this

If you see a newspaper article or a link to a web story that would be of interest to those who visit RAUK, we can seek copyright permissions to reproduce them. For newspaper articles we need to know the name of the publication and date the article appeared (the publisher is useful also).

Please do not cut & paste articles or otherwise reproduce articles in this forum unless you have the express permission of the copyright holder to do so.

(Links to articles on other web sites are fine)
