There were a few Common Darters flying around and settling on the bracken, which is turning bronze.
We had hardly left the car when I noticed a small plank of wood in among some heather, and there, basking in the sunshine were two lizards. As you can see one was much larger than the other. The body of the small one (minus tail) was roughly the length of my little finger.
These are such beautiful creatures!
|I think this lizard has a tick, just behind the front leg ... see here.|
Postscript: it is good to read about the reintroduction of Sand Lizards back into the wild in North Wales.
