Common lizard

I agree it's a common lizard, but I think it's much more likely to be a female. They can be difficult to sex but males tend to be more spotted and females more striped, as this one is. Male also generally have orange spotted bellies. In your photo you can see the edges of the belly scales and these are grey, as you would expect to see in a female.

The lizard looks like a young one and the sexual characteristics may not yet have developed fully.
