New refugio for slow worms

18 May 2024

Doubling the number of shelters for our legless friends

Working with John from London Amphibian & Reptile Group (LARG) we doubled the number of refugio that the slow worms at Grove Farm can use. These A3 sections of black roof felt allow the slow worms (as they are cold blooded) to regulate their temperatures in safety before heading out to hunt. On this particular occasion we only counted 20 individuals. We hope the refugio will allow us to map their locations around more of the site.
