When I’m setting up new tours I like to do a reci! A good look around the area’s we’ll be visiting pays dividends rather than ‘going in cold’.
When doing a visit to the south coast last month for just such a future tour (details to be issued on www.wildlifetoursandeducation.co.uk soon) we stumbled across a few Wall Lizards. The origin of these reptiles is uncertain, they may have been released from captivity or they may be a relict population. I guess we will never know for sure but they are certainly breeding and have established a viable population that has been there for a good number of years. Whatever their source they are smart looking!
