Spotted leaving the pub...

A slow worm!

 Making his way down towards the beach, but put safely in the undergrowth after posing for a photo shoot.

Was it you or the slow worm that was leaving the pub?

I am 51 years old and I don't think I have ever seen a Slow Worm: I've caught many grass snakes, and seen a few adders, but I do not recall a slow worn.

Both of us!!

We'd been in the Ty Coch  and one of the children noticed it slithering down the steps from the bar! Fortunately one of the lads collecting glasses knew exactly what it was, and after it had been photographed he collected it up and put it in the undergrowth behind the pub.

We often have them in the garden.  I wont touch them, but John lifts them and puts them in a dark bit of the hedge.
