Maiden Erlegh Nature Reserve ~ Earley Green Fair

Slowworm on hand

This was the third year Econet has had a joint stall with The Conservation Volunteers at the Earley Green Fair and as in previous years the stars of our stall if not the entire event, were the slowworms.

These creatures are always popular with our visitors, adults and children alike, and we always give people the opportunity to handle them. So taken was one of our visitors, Steve Williams, that he took a series of photo's some of which he has sent us.
