Observed: 13th July 2010 By: Alderfen

This lizard was in the french drain that goes round our house. I disturbed it when I was doing some weeding.It didn't scurry away but stayed still long enough foe me to photograph it.
The second photo is a shield bug found in our garden also

Shield bug

The best think to get the shield bug identified would be to but it in a separate observation in invertebrates.

Smooth newt

Thank you, not a lizard at all! Great to know we have had newts in the garden. Not seen any this year.
