It's going to be August perhaps before any of the stubble fields are available!
Adders are quite scarce now and you only hear about them when someone, or their dog, has been bitten by one.
Adders will only bite when cornered or touched, they will usually carry on basking in the sun if you move slowly and gently past them.
They are more common in the south but here in the north they can be very ellusive.
GPS (see previous article) was used to mark the sightings and revealed some remarkable info when overlaid onto Google earth. It showed that the adders were using a dry stone wall as some kind of reference point.
I'm sure that over time a bigger picture will evolve with more marks added to the database.
The pictures of the days "hunt" with some lovely shots of a large female adder can be seen here.
If anyone has any sightings of adders up'th north then please send details via the contact page. All information will be of the strictest of confidence.
