Milky eyed stripping female

This Adder was one of four we saw on the Essex Birding Day Tour we did the other week. It’s a female judging by her ‘hips’ and general colouring, However her eyes are very milky indicating she’s about to shed her skin.

Adding up the weather for a cool search

A cold March morning last week we stood and quietly watched. Cold but bright is the key to seeing Adders. It took a little while but one or two eventually came to bathe in the sunshine. Spreading themselves flat to absorb the sun’s rays we kept clocking them up. Eleven in all came to join the party.

Eventually it added up

Adders are easier to see from the end of February through to early April when they can frequently be found basking in the early morning sun.

This year I wanted to film a group of Adders but I haven’t had much luck. I did however manage to take this male as he zipped passed me in the bright sunshine.

Snake in the Grass

A little warm weather brings out one or two cold blooded beasties.

We saw this little charmer a couple of weeks ago on a bright morningAdder. Adders appear elusive but can be surprisingly common in some areas.
