Apparently there's been an extensive fire on the cliffs near St Michael's Road, Bournemouth.  Is / was(?) this a sand lizard area ?  I think it's outside the range of the Boscombe wall and green lizards.

Cheers

There were pix on the Daily Mail site yesterday. I thought nearer to Canford Cliffs, but not sure.

This is to the west of Bournemouth Pier so is well away from the Boscombe animals. BUT, there are several Sand Lizard colonies to the west of Boscombe Pier. It is now 15 years since I monitored the cliffs but there were certainly Sand Lizards in that area at that time.
Perhaps David Bird would have some more up to date information.

For those wondering what Agilis is going on about, the offending post (and the four others like it), which were, of course, pure spam has been obliterated - as has the offending Jan1213! (well, obliterated from this forum anyway!).

In the meantime, I have no doubt that "sex life and shoplifting bombsite scalliwags" would be both more entertaining and more acceptable! (but please don't do it!)
