Erasinos river estuary nature reserve - Information













The grass snake (Natrix natrix), sometimes called the ringed snake or water snake, is a Eurasian non-venomous snake.
It is often found near water and feeds almost exclusively on amphibians (and an occasional hasher).




The route around the nature reserve (path in orange) crosses the river via the bridge shown in the photo below.

Skull and horn found on the verge outside a farmhouse



We reach the beach and pass the Vavrona Nautical Club building





The walkers do some extra distance as Coke Dealer's Fitbit wrist activity tracker said she had to walk 10,000 steps.

Are things getting weird in this digital age?


The walkers return to the parked cars
