Slowly does it

Lesley and me headed off to the Chase this morning to have a look around the area called the Punch Bowl, never been here before but it looks like a nice spot.
Thought we hearded Redstart singing away but we could never find one to confirm this.
But better than that (well to me at any rate) was Lesley finding a Slow Worm, a great find and only the second time I have ever seen one and both by chance.

Wandered on for a bit further noting Goldcrest, Chaffinch and a few Blue,Great and Coal Tits around plus the odd Willow Warbler.

On the way back to the car we found another Slow Worm in the same spot, a different one though due to the different colour and size.
