When I was walking home from work today, I saw something rather unusual. A snake, swimming in the canal!
snake! )

I've had a nose around online, and I reckon it was a grass snake.

It was just swimming along, and then when it saw me watching it, it stopped and just floated, completely still, until it decided I wasn't a threat and kept on swimming. I saw it disturb a coot and her young, but from what I've read they only eat amphibians and sometimes fish, so I doubt it would try to eat the coot babies.

I love having this little slice of nature right behind my house. It's awesome.
