What a difference a day makes!

A visit to a chalk grassland site managed by West Sussex County Council Countryside Service, produced my first encounter of the year with an adder - in this case a small male who was basking in the sunshine - sheltered from the prevailing wind, on the cusp of woodland edge.

Trying to take a hasty record shot with an iPhone, I disturbed the snake and failed to get a meaningful photograph - although he is there! I returned the next day, with my camera and found him in almost exactly the same spot.

16th March - record shot

17th March - that's better
