This specimen is, at the moment, one of only one in the population! It appeared in the house through an open doorway and is the first Common Lizard recorded in our garden. (Being colour blind, I had not realised that it was green......) The local population on Martin Down, three quarters of a mile away, are not green, my wife informs me.
