Hi James,

I think it's against forum policy to give out specific locations (for obvious reasons), did you have any luck with your local ARG?.

Cheers, Alex.

I'm not familiar with your neck of the woods I'm afraid James, so can't offer help there...Dorset's my stamping ground (for want of a better term on an Adder thread!), so get out and get looking, several species have already shown their faces this year :)

For obvious reasons ?  I'm clearly a bit slow 

I imagine it's in case the person reading is interested in harming Adders ?  or is there another reason.

I also would love to see an adder in the wild (be quite nice to see any snake in the wild really - but an adder would be great).

I am in the Northern Part of Greater Manchester - would anyone be happy to give a general pointer/area and pref PM me with more specifics and also give any hints on best times of year/day and other tips for maximising chances of seeing one.

I believe some parts of Derbyshire have populations - that's be great as it is such a lovely area too.

I also like the idea of Photographing one but being a class 1 wimp wonder how close you can get to one before it gets a tad irritated ?

Is it easy enough to get close enough to get the adder filling a reasonable amount of the frame ?

Thanks in advance to all and what a great site 

Thanks

Judderman
