Adders galore

Dave Monk from Sedlescombe near Hastings saw large numbers of adders, as well as slow-worms, in Streetfield Wood in the north of the parish this April.

One of his photos shows an adder and a slow-worm sharing the same sunny patch (apparently without conflict) and the other shows a classic 'nest of vipers' with four adders (I think there are four) enjoying a party. Adders seem to be having a very good year at Sedlescombe and, I think, some other places so any other sightings would be welcome.
