It is a grass snake, as he said, they do not bite.

in all my years fishing, walking and now camping, up and down the country, I've never actually seen any of our native snakes in the wild, only ones I have seen have been in captivity, my uncle used to keep snakes and reptiles years ago, can't say I was keen on them then either, venomous or not

Only ever seen two snakes in the wild...One slid past me across the path up from Durdle Door in Dorset...

The other...Was on a small campsite in Wales lying curled up on the road outside reception....

Thinking it was a child's toy I bent down to pick it up(to hand in) when it moved......Took them 3hrs to get me down off the Notice board where I landed when I jumped....

Not exactly scared of them but would rather they go their way and I go mine....
