Bournemouth Lizards

Flushed with my recent success in seeing Sand Lizards, I went to the cliffs at South-bourne today to look for the two exotic, introduced species of lizard which can be found there. Wall Lizards (male, above) were very easy to find, basking, in a shock develpoment, on walls. The larger Green Lizard (below) was a bit more elusive preferring to hide amongst the vegetation, but eventually one showed well. Note the blue colour on the throat of this male.
