Sand Lizards in North Cornwall. 30th March 2021.


 

The Sand Lizard is one of the rarest reptiles in Britain.

Sadly it's habitat is being wiped out by the degradation and erosion of sand dunes.

Fortunately there have been a few re-introduction programmes and one of those here in Cornwall has been quite successful.

I went out today especially targeting a photo of one of these creatures as  the time of the year was right, the weather was right and I knew where to look.

"Bingo" it all came good and I found 4 individuals, including a young one just a few cms long.
