The season has started fairly early this year. Last night there were a few Palmate Newts on the move along with a Common Frog. Today in less than ideal conditions (cold wind but sunny) there was a single Adder braving the cold (Alan Heeley and Mike Breedon had another and Alan had the earliest on Wednesday). I'm off to Cyprus Sunday with the chance of the Big Daddy of Mediterranean Vipers the Blunt Nosed although it might be a little early still.
