All of a sudden something moved and we noticed a small head appearing. It belonged to a Common Lizard and this was my first sighting of the season. The lizard seemed quite unperturbed by a string of Bank Holiday walkers, dogs, children and cyclists who were passing by in quick succession. Common Lizards are protected by law. These photographs were taken with a zoom lens.
Seconds later a front leg appeared...
... and then a body.
It looked for a moment as if the lizard was about...
... to beat a retreat.
However, it decided to stay out in the sunshine, curling its head over the top of its tail
The groups of holiday-makers and day-trippers soon dispersed. The photo of Dunwich Beach below shows just how
I have submitted this lizard sighting to the Record Pool site.
