Yesterday I headed back to Rewell Wood to see if there are any Pearl-bordered Fritillaries as a second brood has been reported in East Sussex. None seen, but there was a plethora of lizards, including slow-worms under mats.

  1. The lizards are amazing! I remember catching newts as a child. Getting about 20 in my bucket, then realising that all that was left to do was release them. Shame to stress them really but, hand on heart, I never did any of that horrible 'boy' stuff (tearing off limbs, etc).
    Lovely pics as always.
