20/07/15 - Adders at Dodpen

Occasionally we see adders at Dodpen and so we are always mindful when working in the fields and around the garden area.  But today we found a beautifully marked adult adder basking close to the house.  An absolutely stunning animal and given its very crisp well defined polished pattern I think the adder had recently sloughed.  We carefully removed it to a safe area and quite a long way from house.
