Hi all, first post after quite a llot of "looking over the fence" so to speak.

Chuffed to bits with finally finding 3 Adders in 3 different parts of the Chase - finally!

Patience rewarded. I'll keep an eye on these spots now..

Love the camouflage on these 2..

Nice photos!

Yes, the hard part is finding them in the first place.

Thanks all, its been a long wait but well worth it. I'm really hoping for Grass snake not too far away too. I'm posting some more Adder pics but from a location near Borth, on the Ceredigion coast.

Well done, ST24,

I'm sure you'll find you have Adders popping up all over

Nice pics.

Rather than start a new thread, just thought I'd update this one. Didn't find any new ones, but kept tabs on these 2 throughout the year (see my Grass Snake thread) Good to see them slough, the remains stayed in the same spot well into September.Must get out there again soon..
