Good to meet you.:¬)
Yes, these were all found in the UK . Do you have any heathland/common land near you?
If so , check there.
I used to have problems finding snakes , but then I started to use the 5ft ahead method .
By this I mean instead of looking down at the ground infront of your feet , look ahead about five foot in front of you.
Don't look on windy days , or on hot sunny days .I see most snakes in muggy overcast weather.
Adders seem to favour basking at the base of Silver birch trees that have been cut down , and grass snakes just seem to appear in front of you suddenly (If you tread very Quietly).
On a different note , I love frogs also :¬) Where do you look for frogs?
There are a few species that i'd like to find but never have :¬(
The natterjack Toad, and i've heard that the marsh frog is now native to Kent. Have you seen either of these?
Cheers, and take care:¬)
