This blog is exactly one year old today and I'll be the first to say that I never thought it would keep going this long - as with many passing phases I thought I'd get bored with it and sack it off after a while but I've persevered and am glad I did.
In other news Hooded Birder has now got a job, but it doesnt start until September so there's no point blathering on about it until I actually start. One thing though - it's at Rutland and should be rather enjoyable!
Anyway, today found me and the midweek LRWT team back at Cribbs Meadow for another session on the Ragwort and Meadowsweet which allowed for another chance to photograph the Common Lizard on site. Today was a much better day for photography as it was much sunnier and this also had the dual benefit of being better weather conditions for reptile activity compared to the last visit (considering the last visit was a fortnight ago on the day of insane weather, this isn't surprising). As a result, I saw more lizards than last time and the images, I'm sure you'll agree, are also an improvement on previous efforts;
And finally, remember this fellow from a previous blog post (see a fortnight ago!) that had lost half of his tail?
Well, I managed to re-find him again today in the same spot and he looks happy as can be...
Plus, his tail is growing back!
