I've been checking a few reptile sites in ‪Epping Forest‬. The closest thing I found was this snakeskin shoe left in a tree. Interesting grass snake found last year in ‪‎Epping Forest‬ with two distinct yellow stripes running down it's back. Stripey grass snakes like this are rare in the UK. DNA from this snake is being analysed to assess whether it's a non-native introduced individual, or if it's a natural but rare British morph. Wanstead Park heron. Frog Spawn - Angel Pond - Wanstead Flats. Common Toad with a dusting of snow - captured at Wake Valley. Smooth Newt - Wanstead Park Common Toad amongst the leaf litter - captured at Connaught Water.If you spot any amphibians or reptiles in the UK please submit your record online via the Record Pool. www.arguk.org/recording You can find me on flickr - www.flickr.com/photos/merrychrismossor through my Facebook Page - Wildlife Photography by Christian Moss Common Frog in the snow - Wake Valley Pond. Beautiful looking Common Toad. Smooth Newt - captured at Bomb crater pond close to Wake Valley. Due to the mild Winter, Amphibian migrations seem to be starting early this year.
