Slow worm

Whilst working in the National Trust car park on the edge of Much Wenlock on Tuesday with our volunteers, Rob spotted a Slow Worm (actually a Lizard without legs) that had been under a pile of cut grass. It soon became aparent that it was in the process of swallowing an Earthworm. Thanks to Rob for the photos, after agravating it whilst we took photos we put the grass back on top of it and left in peace. It was a fairly large meal and would certainly have kept it going for a while, it will soon look for a sheltered place to hopefully protect it during the Winter.
