With up to 80 separate populations across southern England the Wall Lizards are far more mobile and active than either the Common or Sand Lizard. In our normally cool, damp climate they’re restricted to sun drenched rock faces and cliffs. Certainly wouldn’t last long in northern England !
A sun-drenched quarry overlooking the English Channel just up the coast from Sandbanks. Not a bad place to call home.
Fortunately they’re too inquisitive to stay hidden for long. A fact that hasn’t been lost on the local Kestrels !
Hmmm…..another local taking an unhealthy interest. Possibly just dropping in ?
A 10 minute video of a pair of Wall Lizards enjoying the sunshine.
A superb specimen of the increasingly rare Wild Cabbage. In comparison to our modern cultivars really noticeable just how tough the leaves are. I suspect even the Large Whites struggle eating this one.
