Adder are out in Teesdale

After what seems like weeks and weeks of cold grey skies we finally have some sunshine in Teesdale. With the increased temperatures I suspected adder would be out of hibernation (Brumation) and basking in sun so headed across to a hibernation site I regularly visit on the Teesdale/Weardale border. Sure enough two males were found in their usual spot enjoying a few rays. I didn't want to disturb them too much so simply grabbed a few record shots and left them to it.
