Nature Reserve Notes: Looking for Reptiles at RSPB Minsmere

We had been told that there were Adders about at RSPB Minsmere, so we were keeping an eye out for reptiles over the last Bank Holiday weekend. David was particularly sharp-eyed, and spotted a scaled creature camouflaged by the dry leaves. The photo above has been cropped considerably to make the reptile more visible!

It tuned out to be ...

... a magnificent Common Lizard. Definitely another exciting seasonal first (26 May 2013) ... though we never got to see an Adder!
