Thanks Hilda, they are common around here so I should make the time to learn more about them.

I quite like seeing them around in the garden although my gardener is terrified of them and won't work in any section of the garden for weeks if he has spotted a snake there. So there are always a few unkempt places in our garden!

I am assuming this is a little night adder. It was on its way into my kitchen a few weeks ago. My cats were far too interested, so we had to catch and release as soon as possible. Not an easy task for me.
The bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song.
