The biggest surprise today was something seen right towards the end of the afternoon. We had set off from the Humber Bank shortly after seeing a Kingfisher. Shortly afterwards the Kingfisher's call rang out again. We stopped to see if we could glimpse it, but the vegetation and bank hid it from sight. Then, I spotted a rather erratic small object working towards us across the water. It appeared to be heading straight for the Kingfisher's perch. It was a Grass Snake. The first I've ever seen at Welton Waters. I wonder how much of the massive lake it had swam across? Hopefully, it didn't go on to eat the Kingfisher!
