These two images are not ones you would expect to find in our Photo Gallery but they are part of the often unseen and hidden natural world of our BC Reserve at Alners Gorse.

Both photos were taken on 05/09/2021 by Warren Port, one of the regular herpetologists involved at Alners Gorse who told us that this sub-adult Adder was a new one for them here.

It’s great to know a little bit more of the diversity of this fantastic butterfly reserve.
