Adders

Yesterday, the air temperature was still about 5 degrees with only intermittent sunshine to tempt out any snakes. I met up with Bob at a Wealden hot spot and we found 2 or 3 Adders basking in warm hollows in the dead bracken. Those ruby red eyes are mesmerising and you can also see the notch in the top lip where the tongue exits.
