I thought it was a slow worm but the black markings have confused me?
No interactions present.
I think that you are right. Take a look at this for example http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/203013

The black markings are there on others that have been put on by others. It might be one of the ways of telling what sex they are.
This is typical colouring for young animals.

It's too young to be able to sex as all baby slow worms have this colouration. It's very difficult to sex slow worms from external characteristics until they reach a snout to vent length of about 12cm.

Very close to the sea, on a footpath with hedgrows and fields either side. I did put it in the undergrowth to protect it.
