Four of the six I photographed from the bottom to the top of Manor Ravine.
No interactions present.
I recently read a paper about the origin of all the introduced wall lizards in the UK. They come from all over the place. The population at Boscombe is apparently a mixture of animals from northwest Italy (the subspecies P. m. nigriventris) and northeast Italy (P. m. maculiventris) arising from different introductions.
I have looked at bits and pieces that state that the Victorians introduced the lizards and also from France I believe. Have these two species mixed?
Still looking for a decent shot at a Western Green, but the numbers are well down and although I saw one at a new site on the cliffs (SZ 10798 91226) which is above and slightly to the east of Manor Ravine. Ideal Western Lizard area.
