Thanks for all your nice comments people.
 
If someone from NE would say that they're willing to bring back some of the Gateway Adders, Grassies etc from Wiltshire and restock EF with a greater care programme for future protection of the place, I could be persuaded to continue.

But let's face it, there's more chance of West Ham winning the premier league than that happening!

Now there's an idea!
 
But the only venomous snakes I have handled aside from the odd Adder are Taiwan Beauty snakes and American water snake - not exactly Cape Cobras!
 
Hope things are good out there, did you have anymore trouble with the bite area?

You have my sympathy on all this EF or should I say Effing forest management Rob its heart breaking to see these idiots playing about with the nature of the area to suit their own little world of how the public should perceive wildlife, Sadly due age and finances I would disapear back into the bush just as Tony has done. keith

Heres a bit a thought they rounded up all the EF fallow deer years ago from the forest to let it be taken over by non native deer.perhaps a snake cull is on the cards so the can give a home to pythons and homeless corn snakes?. keith

...a bit like giving gamekeepers the power to destroy buzzard nests to protect non native (and reptile-killing) pheasants, maybe?

That's weird Will, I just posted the same thing on the Allerthorpe thread!
 
Keith,
 
I heard a rumour (as you do) that part and parcel of the strimming was collecting up all the herps found and exporting.... To who knows where!!??
 
And I've mentioned to Gemma before certain other rumours about Herps being "collected" in EF and I'm sure now there's something behind it.
 
I don't think its a cull, more like a hush hush translocation.

I found a plastic box (broken) with vent holes in the top.
 
You know the sort - in reptile shops they keep the juvs in temporary boxes.
