Wales adder bite hotspot

I knew the UK had wild snakes but I wasn’t aware that we had  Adder’s in Wales that bite!

Apparently getting bitten is a rare occurrence but as the numbers are on the increase due to warmer weather, more reports are appearing of hikers getting bitten. So I thought I would share a link from the BBC which includes a quick “what to do if you get bit by an Adder”.
