Local herpetological guru Ray was out on the dunes at St Annes last Saturday, possibly the last decent sunny day of the summer.
He walked along the pavement and found over 30 lizards basking on dry patches of sand, most of them juveniles which is good news.
A few weeks ago he sent through some pics of his captive Sand Lizards which are being kept to provide youngsters for the various re-introduction schemes. Hopefully one of those will be our dunes.
In other news, a friend of FARG Alex spotted and photographed a nice Slow Worm in the 'usual place' just outside our recording area this weekend.
