  • New Forest Adders (2005) Narrated by Bill Oddie

    🎬New Forest Adders, Filmed by Manuel Hinge for BBC. Narrated by Bill Oddie. Part of the 2005 'Wildlife Shorts' season.

    The New Forest is one of the few places in Britain where you can find all six of the UK's reptile species living together - but the leader of the pack has to be the infamous adder.

    This film offers a rare insight into the life of the adder, following them and the other reptiles through a typical season. The male adders emerge early in the year in this stunning setting. They soon shed their dull winter coat, reveal their bright spring colours, and then they are ready to find a mate through one of the most amazing and rarely seen wildlife spectacles...the adders' dance.
