Reptile basking banks

basking bank

Simple, south-facing basking banks can increase the opportunities for reptiles to warm up on sites that are otherwise poor in aspect or topographical variation. Banks can be created very rapidly by machine. They may be long and straight, crescent-shaped, or sinusoidal. They should be turfed or seeded to encourage a good vegetation structure, ideally with patches of scrub and occasional log or brash piles.
