You could've got a train from Peterborough to Norwich then I could've picked you up BB   but it would still have been a long journey for you.... and I quite understand about the ME - daughter had it through her teens and twenties following glandular fever - totally mucked up her education and much of what should've been a brilliant time of her life.

I'm also pretty certain that a grass snake is the best judge of what is 'suitable habitat' for grass snakes..

They really are the most magical animals and totally harmless.  You may be lucky and find a sloughed skin - like a ghost - and if you have a compost heap please be careful, it may contain eggs   They are usually laid in June, but of course this year everything's happening early - and they hatch in September/October depending on weather.
