We were walking along the boardwalk at Wicken Fen a few days ago ... when a tiny face popped up between the slats ...
... and looked in our direction. It was a Common Lizard, and perhaps the smallest I have ever seen.
Some minutes later a second lizard (the one in the photos immediately above and below this piece of text) raised its head above 'the parapet', and seemed less concerned about our presence than the first one.
We have had quite a good summer for reptile sightings ... four Common Lizards, one Adder ... and (for David) a Grass Snake. Sadly I have not seen any amphibians to date this year.
