If you compare the back of this Adder's head with the one on the posts below, you will see it has a different pattern, especially obvious around the 'V' on the back of the neck. It was a darker individual than the previous male, looking particularly black on the zig-zags near the tail end.

Frampton Marsh RSPB is a little like walking around a North American reserve in Florida or Texas or whatnot, with Little instead of Snowy Egrets virtually ignoring you, while everywhere else they are absurdly nervous and skittish! Ripe for photography, but these were just some quick off the cuff snaps...
