I am writing this on a very wet and miserable Bank Holiday. It does give me time however to catch up on editing and blog work.My latest upload therefore is about the search for adders and dippers on a recent trip to the Bowland area of Lancashire. Martin and I enjoyed a super day out in this lovely part of Lancashire and I was thrilled to find and photograph my first adder. The weather at the end of March was more like Summer and the adders were waking from their hibernation. On the way home we called at a spot I know near to Dunsop Bridge where dippers nest alongside a fast flowing river. We enjoyed nice views of the dippers returning with food for their recently hatched young.We kept at a reasonable distance to photograph them and the dippers were unconcerned as they made frequent visits to the nest site with food from the river. Hope you enjoy the images below of the dippers and the female adder I was fortunate to find.When the weather improves I hope to be off again on my travels to bring you more from the Lancashire countryside.
