On the third day of Christmas my true love sent to me...

...3 lizards,



The common lizard (Zootoca vivipara) is one of the other target species (along with the adder) in the 'Scales and Warts' survey. This family of three lizards was seen basking on a rock on Big Moor on the eastern side of the Peak District. Common lizards can shed their tail when attacked. Amazingly, the tail can continue to move for some time once detached - distracting the predator and allowing the lizard to make its escape. 

2 mating toads,


and a bilberry bumblebee!
