My mum recently found this snake in her garden and sent me a photo. It doesn't appear to have the markings of a common British snake from what I have seen and read and I would appreciate any help in identifying it. My mum lives on the coast in the north east of England. Thanks!
Pity the photo is not clearer, I agree it is probably a Corn snake, it is also likely to be an escapee as all snakes would be hibernating at this time of year, if the photo was taken in the Winter months it would be unlikely to survive. They are harmless.
