Whilst out walking the local fields and woodlands near my home in mid-Kent I was fortunate to find the shed skin of one the United Kingdoms six native reptiles, which are the adder or viper (Vipera berus) , grass snake (Natrix natrix), smooth snake (Coronella austriaca), sand lizard (Lacerta agilis), common lizard (Lacerta vivipara) and slow worm (Anguis fragilis).

Having spent many occasions watching foxes (Vulpes vulpes) it never ceases to astound me how diverse their diet can be. I have often seen them hunting small mammals in the snow crusted fields, listening intently to their prey before pouncing.

Foxes like to do their toilet and deposit the faeces, or scat, on raised areas so that their scent is spread further by the wind. I’ve often found fresh scat on the large round bails the day after the bailer has been round – they are never shy to miss an opportunity.

"Thanks again for a rewarding day. Holly and I both got a lot from it. I've been trying to get my kids interested in the 'real' world for some time. They usually get bored with anything that doesn't involve a screen but Holly stayed interested all day. A real achievement!"
