This is the Scottish Ambulance Service's medivac helicopter shortly after it took off from the Community Centre playing field at 5.30pm on Saturday. It had been called out to take a ten-year old girl to hospital after she'd been bitten by an adder. Apparently, she had picked it up.
An adder bite on a child is much more dangerous than on an adult as the same amount of venom is diffused through a much smaller body. On the other hand, children usually recover quicker than adults.
An information sheet about how to deal with adder bites is available on Dropbox. It can be downloaded here.
