    Just a little bit tangential...
    I noticed a few houses in my wife's village have free-range geese. I am told they keep snakes away. Believable.

    I saw this snake a few days ago. It was sliding quickly along a tin roof with it's tongue busy doing something. It looked like it was looking for and hoovering up insects. The snake was about a metre long but not very thick - about a centimetre or two in diameter. Anyone know what kind of snake it is?

    Thanks, Pragmatic. It definitely looks like a bronzeback. I've just done some googling and found that the Striped Bronzeback doesn't have a black line going along it's eyeline like the snake in my photo does but a Common or Painted Bronzeback (same species) does.

    It is not dangerous.
