A couple of days ago as I was weeding and clearing an area in my garden when I came across a small brown "thingy" creeping around the stones and had to pick it up and move it to safety. I wasn't sure to begin with whether it was a newt or lizard but having checked on www. have decided it was a juvenile common lizard. I am delighted to have them in the garden, they are so cute with their tiny fingers and are good pest controllers. It is the first I have seen since moving to England 40 yrs ago from Guernsey. We used to see them sunbathing when walking the cliff paths, bright green diddy little ones, sand lizards I think. I know I have slow worms but rarely see them, unless the cat brings one home. Little beast! Along with all of the small brown furries she brings home as presents for Mum.
