The Lizard Walk on Thursday at St Anne's dunes was spoiled by unseasonably cold weather. At the start of the walk the group gathered in the adjacent car park dressed in waterproofs, woolly hats and thick gloves - not the most appropriate attire to inspire confidence for watching reptiles.
Needless to say no lizards were seen by the dozen would-be spotters.
However with better weather today I went back and was lucky enough to find this small juvenile Common Lizard basking in amongst the Marram Grass tumbling over the edge of the track.
A bit of a lucky find but welcome all the same.
Our next events are amphibian orientated with daylight and torchlight searching, please see previous post for locations and booking details.
