Well in fairness Suzi it's their good camouflage that helps keep them safe - so that's fine with me Lol. I was amazed though at Chris spotting them so quickly and seemingly easily.

Having advised you to go out with someone to show you the ropes it doesn't say much for me who, as I said, takes her husband out and he still can't see the adders!

you n Chris must have super vision Lol

Oh if anyone is interested here's a link to see all the pics I took:

here's a link to my  pics  - 23 pics in all:

Best effect is to select the slide show, set interval time to 4 or 5 seconds, once it starts hiy f11 on your keyboard  and then towards bottom right there are two overlapping boxes - click on the larger one and you should get full screen with nice big pics - give it a whirl.

Let me know what you think.

Some nice pics there judders m8.....

I can't see where you should have too much trouble spotting them beauties given the contrast between the adder and its background though, specially in the males being more grayish as apposed to the females bronze , but then as Suzi says.... better to be with someone who knows what to look for.... not heard from Tim yet m8 but as soon as he gets in touch we could probably arrange a meet....
