Well, In the last two days Iv'e came across three adders ! Iv'e only ever seen grass snakes before and these boys are definitely adders, white with black diamond shapes going down their lengths of 18/24 inch. I must have startled two as they made their getaways but the third just lay coiled up a metre away from me staring!
I don't mind snakes in general but I don't like them to surprise me, I like to know where they are.
They are all probably out sunning themselves after a long hibernation period underground.
I will make sure I wear long boots now,
Has anyone on the SD been unfortunate enough and been bitten by an adder??
