Great pics, and well done on the green lizards - were they on the zig-zag given the lack of cover for them up on the top by the road ?

yeah, great pics. A lot of people seem to make the trip to
Bournemouth, but very few seem to bring back decent pics...
Well done!

The clearance would probably favour the non natives and
thus the natives - will probably be more affected by the
'dryer' conditions with the gorse removal.

Glad to see that the animals are still there. I must get
down there sometime

Judging by the size difference, this male wall lizard prefers younger women or vice-versa..  BTW, only one viviparous lizard seen despite good conditions, due to habitat destruction in the more humid area at the top of the zig-zag, I reckon.

Quite possibly the real reason why viviparous lizard seem
to be doing badly - I must get down there sometime
