Middleton-Cum-Fordley WI - Adders by Steve Everett ( Minsmere Volunteer)

The adder is a relatively small, stocky snake that prefers woodland, heathland and moorland habitats. It hunts lizards and small mammals, as well as ground-nesting birds, such as skylark and meadow pipit. In spring, male adders perform a ‘dance’ during which they duel to fend off competition to mate. Females incubate the eggs internally, ‘giving birth’ to three to twenty live young. Adders hibernate from October, emerging in the first warm days of March, which is the easiest time of year to find them basking on a log or under a warm rock.
