I am not sure if anyone else has seen any hatchling Sand Lizards yet this year, as I have not seen a post yet. I was getting worried with all the rain and cool weather that we have had in Dorset this year. I saw my first hatchling today 13th August on a particularly warm and protected sand slope, the lizard was under a tin and seemed to return under it all the time , not wanting to be out basking.
