Seems to be loads of dead Shrews about this morning? I know it's wet and miserable, but it's not exactly cold?

We did Sid. Great talk again by Clare, and fantastic to see two of the bats these folks are caring for : the Noctule and Whiskered bat brought along this evening. It was really great to see the bairns who attended this evening (along with adults) really enjoying the experience, especially with the detectors when they picked up pips... I think (hope) a few detectors will be on a Santa list or two this year. ..
Pip(s) again just yards away from our gaff on the dog walk after this.

I got a report yesterday from a birdwatcher (not sure of his name but he knows many on this forum) who informed me that an adder had been spotted behind Marsden Old quarry. Apparently photos were taken of the snake. Has anyone else heard this?

I had a call from someone to report this - they said they knew the bloke who had taken the pictures.
It would be a first for South Tyneside, so I am awaiting the pictures before submitting this as a record. We did have a report of an escaped snake on the quarry the other month, but it wasn't one you'd mistake for an adder.

I haven't seen a wild adder and probably couldn't tell the difference between an adder and a grass snake. The man who gave me the information said the snake was as "thick as his arm". Sounds a bit big I would have thought for an adder, does anyone know how big they grow?

I thought as much so perhaps it is what Clare said an escaped snake. Whatever it is I think we should give it a wide berth if it's as thick as a man's arm
