For as long as I remember they have always migrated from the lake where I walk my dog. So why is this year different? Could it be a factor of climate change? Or is it mild enough around here they prefer to stay over winter. I am at a loss and wonder if anyone else has any suggestions.
In one of my clients compost heaps I noticed some eggs which I assumed were snake eggs, I only took one photo and covered them up to keep them warm, I did feel one of the eggs and it was cold so I don’t have much hope for them.
Nevertheless a rare find.
