Garden Slow-worms

We usually see two or three Slow-worms (actually legless lizards) underneath an up-turned wheelbarrow in our Gorseinon garden, but Mark Newton counted nine in his Loughor garden recently and took this image of one of them.
It's quite possible you may also have Slow-worms in your garden, so why not put down some squares of roofing felt, tin sheets or even on old upturned wheelbarrow in a quiet sunny corner, preferably near a compost heap. Let us know how you get on...
