I took some rubbish out to the bin late last night, I looked down at the path and thought "that's a big worm".
I took a closer look this morning and it isn't a worm... it's a baby SNAKE!!!
I am VERY glad that it is dead. It gives me the heebie-geebies just looking at the photo. Judging by the squished neck I am guessing that it was dropped by a bird... lets just hope there aren't any more!
