    Amazing what you find in the workplace when you live out in the sticks :Laughing:
    Never seen him move so quick (JC not the snake)......took a woman to get rid of it! :Rofl1: :Rofl1:

    Nah......a harmless little grass snake - it was more scared than he was :Laughing:

    Picked it up with a stick, popped it in a box and released it in the wooded area the other side of the garden - simple :BigGrin:

    Dan was most upset - he wanted to keep it as a pet :Doh:

    That's a grass snake, they're harmless.

    DONT kill it or hurt it, they live on other pests etc.

    Cheers

    Adders are smaller and more distinctive markings. Best thing for them is a seven iron.
    Can take the head right off with a seven iron.

    Hi Peter

    I knew what it was having grown up in the countryside - I had to move it away from the workshop otherwise he'd have got nothing done this afternoon :Laughing:

    If I see an adder I shall get in touch with you pronto! :Wink:

    I feel I must comment on, and inform you of my dismay at your response re the treatment of Adders
    any resonable golfer would know a seven iron is over kill and the sound from a 3 wood is so much more satifying
