5th September 2010 – Reptile Walk

Mike Phillips, Kent Reptile & Amphibian Group (KRAG), led walkers on a tour of Bredhurst Woods.  Earlier in the year Mike assisted BWAG to set up a reptile monitoring scheme and walkers were taken to examine sites where reptiles are now known to live. Species identified included adders, slow-worms and lizards.  The highlight of the day was finding a black adder basking in the sunshine.  These adders, whilst not common, are relatively abundant in some adder populations and Bredhurst is one of only two sites inKent where they can frequently be found.  For more information on the work of KRAG please visit http://www.kentarg.org/news/
