In The Garden

We were sitting out in the garden earlier today and noticed a slight movement amongst the variegated ivy that we have growing up an old wall between us and next door.

We kept watching for a short while and then this little chap poked his head out from the undergrowth, made sure everything was safe and then proceeded to sit on a largish Ivy leaf and sun himself, he certainly wasn't intimidated by me poking a compact camera in his direction either.

For those that don't know it's a Viviparous Lizard  (Zootoca vivipara)  also known as the Common Lizard, not that common around here though, wonderful to see though and hopefully the first of many sightings of this little chap in the garden.
