Hot spring day with a good adder count

The day before I flew to Kos, Carl and I decided to visit a site for adders (Vipera berus) which we had visited previously in 2014. It was rather a hot day so we started early. First up was my first Grass snake (Natrix natrix) of 2015, soon followed by 24 male and 1 female adder. In addition a couple of common lizards (Zootoca vivipara) were crawling in the grass.

Back home after my Greece trip, common toads (Bufo bufo) were breeding away with many moving by daytime.
