Tony Rayner seems to have been having amazing success with his slow-worms over at Cholsey, if his most recent transect is anything to go by. On the walk around the edge of his meadow last week, and under tin sheets that he has laid out to attract reptiles, he found a grand total of 99 slow-worms!!
Tony has spent years making his meadow and garden a real haven for wildlife and he does a regular transect looking for reptiles and butterflies. But I think this was possibly the largest number of slow-worms he has ever recorded in one visit. Well done Tony – see if you can break the 100 barrier next time! 🙂
