Record tally of Adders
On Saturday 2nd April in the afternoon, I saw a record tally of Adders, 22 to be precise (19 male and 3 female) all in the 3 main areas near the end of the track in the local woodland. many were basking in groups in the sun, several lying together in pairs. A grass snake seen 2/3 of the way down the track briefly too.
No sign of any raptors despite an hours vigil at Ashby & Lound.
