Snakes alive!

I popped down to the farm after work this afternoon. It was the warmest day of the year and the Adders were getting some rays. This male was taking a bit of a gamble, being out on the pasture several slithers away from the nearest patch of cover. He stayed perfectly still to allow a few photos, then made a dash for the brambles.

Most of the Wheatears have moved through now, but here's a late-ish one. I love to see them perched on gorse.


  1. It's looking brilliant Andy. I'm beginning to wish I lived over there now.

  2. The number of snakes are adding up... I have not seen one this year at gates. Hope to soon though.
