Videos of adders
Since seeing my first three adders of the season on 25 February 2021, the relatively sunny weather has brought more adders into view at Branton Lakes Nature Reserve. They typically hibernate between about October – March, emerging in the late Winter/early Spring, depending on weather conditions.
They’re endlessly fascinating.
Here are a couple of videos that I took of two adders (both males) on 26 February 2021: one is coiling and the other actively exploring.
