First Lizard of the Year and a few Adders
For the third Saturday running I have been out surveying Adders (Vipera Berus). I started in a new area but failed to find any so i moved on to another area. On the 5th I found 5 in this area but today there was an additional 2 making 7, and all males. Interestingly one individual had moved from its original spot and joined 2 more 200 metres away. Also today was my first Viviparous Lizard (Zootoca vivipara) of the year, a nice greenish/blue individual a colour morph which is not uncommon in the area.
