Hello Alexis,

I'm emailing you the attached photo of an Adder as requested by the personal Twitter message from @BBCSouthTodayWeather.

It was taken during our conservation work session in Shide Quarry, Newport.  We are a community group working all over the Island.

If you are able to use it please do.

Many thanks

Watching the early evening local news I managed to quickly grab this (rather poor quality) photograph taken at the start of the local weather forecast.  

This is the original one, taken by Terry at the GG session yesterday…..

Well done to…..Steve for spotting it…..Terry for photographing it…. and to Mark for putting on the Twitter site. 

Also have a look in the IoW County Press - dated 24th Dec 2015, page 32 (Letters). Terry's photograph of "the Shide Adder" appears at the bottom of the page along with a brief mention of Green Gym. So much fame for one over active adder….!
