: Yup, herps in the wild.
: I belief you have three native snake species?
Yes, the smooth snake, the grass snake and the adder. The smooth snake is incredibly rare (about 2000 left in the country, and only occurs on lowland heath in the Hampshire/Dorset area). The grass snake and adder certainly occur in Nottinghamshire.
The adder likes heaths or moors and similar open, sunny habitats. The grass snake can be found in many open habitats near water-bodies (as it eats amphibians), a good example is grassland round flooded gravel pits or clay pits.
There's a map of Nottinghamshire nature reserves at:
-some of these might be worth visiting.
hope that helps.
