ASLOW WORM SURVEYSugust 2023 -
I have been surveying for slow worms at an Avon Wildlife Trust nature reserve for the past 5 years, this article outlines the survey methodology and results, and includes information on the ecology of slow worms. These beautiful creatures are generally most active in the spring and early autumn, so September/October will be a good time to look for them.

it to people who are looking to improve their botanical skills. Here is a
