Upto a balmy seven degrees in Llandegla today although the lake is still half frozen and still lots of snow around.No adders yet ,infact just one solitary common lizard on a bank where soon there will be hundreds .Still its a start. It is alive ,just looks a bit like I did a couple of weeks ago after my 40th.

Hi Dave,

I see there is possibly some evidence of predation here, judging by the lack of the distal portion of tail and scarring arounf the base of the tail.

I saw my first Common Lizard of the year, which was out basking on the dead braken at my local Adder site.

I haven't looked yet and to be honest, I haven't got motivation to do so at the moment.  I don't know why.
