Swimming grass snake

Yesterday was the first time in my 6.5+ years in England that I've seen a snake in the wild. There are only three types of snake in the UK: the adder, the grass snake and the smooth snake. I was very excited when the bloke & I spotted a grass snake while walking around a National Trust property in Norfolk (Oxburgh Hall). This was the best shot I could get of it, as it was swimming rather rapidly upstream...towards a group of ducklings.
