Reptiles and Amphibians of Hertfordshire
Dave Willis is one of a group of people who have been constructing an 'ATLAS' showing the distribution of these animals across our County.
This has obviously been a mammoth task and I believe it is still ongoing. Quite amazing to imagine such diversity across such a small part of Britain, never mind of Europe. Quite a lot of the work has been on newts and I am certainly looking forward to this part of the talk; I'm not sure if he will be bringing any reptiles with him but I certainly hope so. I wonder which species we unknowingly have in our own gardens?
