The Early Adder (2018)

Early adder at Branton

In 2015, I saw my first basking adder of the new season on 8 March 2015.

In 2016, it was around the same time of the year on 12 March 2016 that the basking adders were back.

Well, this year I caught sight of my first adder basking near the entrance to the Branton Lakes Nature Reserve on 20 February 2018 (between 2-3 weeks earlier than previous years). And here it is:
