Dan

There are adders on the fells in that area of the Lakes so you might be lucky BUT it is getting a bit late in the year now. Spring might  prove a better time. I realise you are tying this in with half-term hols.

The lizards were in our garden when we moved there in 1961 BUT we didn't see them after that. It's a long time ago so hard to remember but possibly we were too noisy and disturbed them (an older couple had the house before us) or maybe in the bitter winter of 62/63 they were wiped out. I tend to think it was just us noisy kids that did it!

If your Dad is up for it he would be the best person to accompany you on your trips and help you look for adders etc.

Hi Dan,
I wouldn't be to offended that you have not recieved a reply from all your emails. Don't know about other members but, people often register on forums with hotmail accounts and the like , this is how emails can easily be missed.


Cheers,
Al
