Grass snakes are my vote.

Too thin for adders and slow worms looks more rotund (like the picture attached). I believe the only other U.K. possibility is the smooth snake.

There's no doubt about it Andy. They're grass snakes.

Out of interest should you not kill them as invasive species ? They don’t look as tasty as muntjac who are the anti christ haha.
