    ...I found this very interesting. Adders are mentioned half way through the piece. IMO the biggest hazard are deer ticks....I know someone in a wheelchair thanks to Lymes disease and I have spent time in hospital thanks to a deer tick bite. BBC News - Perils of the English countryside

    Here are a few reptile and amphibian shots from the last week. First up it has to be the Adders, they really are the stars of my local heath and it is always great to see familiar faces popping out every spring. I have been seeing some of these snakes since the late 90s. These specimens in...

    I know down south sightings of adders have already been recorded, but up in the central belt of Scotland they're only just started to appear. I have been out the last few days, and until today, I've only found common lizards. However, today yielded a total of four adders. What makes today...

    Took my son and a good wildlife photographer friend out adder watching today-to see if we could get some nice adder shots. Most of these were my mobile snaps, but when Bob Brindsurch( google his website if you like photographing wildlife!) sends me some more I'll pop them on. We found 5 adders...

    As the post offices computer systems were down this afternoon and I couldn't dispatch orders I thought I'd take a walk, saw my first Adders for the year, a male & female pair coiled together: And the season for Toads on Roads is upon us, they've started to make their move slowly with a few...

    I was viewing a house out in Teesdale this morning and decided to make a detour to a known adder spot. As it was spontaneous, I only had my camera phone, but I'll probably return next weekend and take some higher quality pics. I'm not great with sexing adders but I think all three are female...

    Hi everyone. I visited both my favourite sites yesterday. The first one was quite disappointing with only a couple of Slow Worms and a few Viviparous Lizards spotted. I didn't expect there to be many Adders about once it had warmed up so I got there quite early but still failed to find any. The...

    Im planning on going to Cannock Chase (west midlands) tomorrow to see if I can spot any adders, common lizards or even grass snakes to take photographs of. Its supposed to be a nice warm day so im hoping ill be able to catch some basking on the rocks and sidewalks to try and get a few good shots :)

    Wasn't sure whether to put these here or in the field herping section, but I'm sure a friendly mod will move them if they deem it necessary. I went out today with an interesting experiment in mind... would the Adders I see most days at my local patch accept a f/t fuzzy mouse as prey? I know...
