It has to be said that you need to be a bit sharp eyed to spot our lizard in this somewhat wild area of orchard, but we can, of course, zoom in.

This is the common lizard and it was really quite a tiny creature. You are unlikely to see one now as they hibernate from about October to March.

Do keep your eye open. We do like to keep a record of local wildlife.
