Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

ADDER

If you have not yet seen your first Adder of the year (or if you have never seen one), take a May morn­ing walk on heath­land, moor­land or down­land. Although April’s ter­ri­to­rial com­bats (danc­ing male snakes!) and most mat­ings will be over for an­other year, fe­males that have emerged some­what tardily may still be wait­ing for a part­ner. Mean­while, most males will be re­cu­per­at­ing af­ter their spring ex­er­tions. See them this month, as they will be­come harder to en­counter over the sum­mer.
