The fearless Nigel releases a snake trapped in a fence today, rather you than me Nigel!
We MUST add to this piece Nigel has lived here for many years and living where he does is very experienced with the wildlife on the island.
Some snakes here on the island have poisonous bites and should NOT be approached, normally they will leave way before you see them as they are naturally timid and will only bite if they feel they are being threatened and have no alternative apart from biting to protect themselves.
In the unlikely event you are bit by a snake YOU should always seek immediate medical and remember as much descriptive information of the snake as possible.
