I’m going to admit this straight away, even though it’s a tad embarrassing; I had no idea we had lizards in this country.
When we spotted this beauty I thought it was a really big newt but, thanks to the friendly wildlife photographers at Strumpshaw Fen, I now know this is a common lizard – apparently the UK’s most widespread reptile.
This one was quite happy basking in the sunshine. What a beauty!
