Northern sand lizards
Early this morning, myself, Kat and Carl headed to the coast to visit the coastal sand lizard (Lacerta agilis) population. Here we met with Paul Hudson who works closely with the population and has worked on a captive breeding programme for many years. I haven’t visited these lizards for several years as they can be extremely difficult to find. Things started slowly but after several hours, four male, one female and one juvenile sand lizard were found. The males are very bright green at this time of year in this population and the ones we saw were no exception!
