Snakes alive! (no, dead) & dying Ash

On the lawn yesterday there was a half eaten grass snake. A shame but it must have been too slow to get away.

The bottom picture shows the dire effects of Ash die-back (Chalara fraxinea), even on mature trees. We have a few ash which are hundreds of years old – I hope those survive. The copse has many ash trees – it will be devastating to lose most of them.
