If the author has identified it correctly, unless you're a small mammal or a bird you have nothing to worry about.

I have only rarely seen snakes in the wild. Whenever I have, I have been struck by their beauty.

Constrictors, keep hold of their tails or they'll squeeze and squeeze yer to death. :closedeyes:

I met a grass snake in the water on the other side of Braunston on the South Oxford a couple of years ago. It was swimming really well. I think this one is also a grass snake not a Burmese Python.

Once came across one similar to that at Ferrybridge lock, it had coiled itself neatly round a bollard that we were going to tie up to for the night.  Assume it was getting heat from the bollard which had been in the sunshine all day.  Found another bollard, lol......

I'd have put that down as a British grass snake which is often found near water and can spend a great deal of its time in it.  Is that not what it is?

We are lucky and see grass snakes on a regular basis on the Fossdyke and Witham.

It was struggling to get out of the water at Saxilby due to the piled edge so we scooped it out with the landing net and put it out of harm's way.
