Today I decided to look for my first female adder of the year. To be honest I should have set off a bit earlier, i didn't arrive until 9.45am (8am would have been better) when it was already too warm. Anyway I only found 2 snakes, both males, but both were in a different area. Viviparous Lizards (Zootoca vivipara) were in evidence, mainly juveniles of last year and all were nicely warmed up and too quick to photograph.
Up in the air there were 2 Common Buzzards (Buteo buteo) Circling.
