I find these adult Grass Snakes (Natrix natrix) yesterday, courting in braken on the side of a slag heap at the old lead working at Charterhouse. I had been looking for over an hour when I became aware of the rustling sound as they moved through the bracken and leaf litter. In total there were more than 10 and may be 15 of them. It was a great experience, lying down only 6ft from them, although a little un-nerving when I heard further movement behind me.
