Great pic Rick

Maybe one weekend I'll come along with you to BB, as it sounds a great site.

Nice to see the adders thriving again at BB, as I, like Tony, first encountered them there and at Stoke Common, as a kid, before I emigrated to Lancashire.

  I would also be interested to know if there are any left at Stoke Common. I noticed that there were signs for them there last year.

Cheers,

Mike

Went over to BB yesterday and saw a snake - unsure which species it was because I just saw the tail end of it as it slithered away into the ferns and didn't get to see the patterning.

Also saw a common lizard, and found a shed from an adult grassy :)

Need to go back to find adders though

Further to my previous post, I would be very interested to know what the present status is with adders at my old 'stomping ground' of Stoke Common, which I used to frequent regularly before migrating to Lancashire and eventually Liverpool in 1978 (due to work, not choice, initially, although I really like living in Merseyside now).

Please PM me with any info.

Many thanks,

Mike Brown

I went to Burnham Beeches for the first time last spring (bad considering im not very far from there!) looked for reptiles on quite a few visits on days which i thought would be ideal but all i saw was a common lizard.

Had a good look round any areas i thought they might be hiding but cant help thinking i was looking in the wrong places. Great place for a walk and im already excited about having another look soon as its warm enough!
