Well this time i had some luck on my side , out in search of Adders again i found a dead mouse , it had not been dead long and was right by where i had seen Adders sun bathing. After setting up and getting comfortable i waited to see if anything was going to happen,I could see Adders moving around in the area near me and as i was lying in the heather i kept an eye on anything moving close to me !
After a couple of hours i saw movement in the heather close to where the mouse was lay , i then made out the head of a good sized Adder , head up and tongue flickering moving slowly towards me quartering the area , obviously homing in on the mouse , How the mouse had died i had no idea , perhaps a victim of this snake ?
These are really good Tim and developing into a fabulous set!
Thanks Tim , I’ll give you a ring when I get back off hols
Hi there,that is another beautiful adult female adder. You can tell as she has a brown zig zag. Males have black. Please submit your reptile and amphibian records here – http://arc.cofnod.org.uk/
