The Common Lizard (Lacerta [Zootoca] vivipara) Taken on Tiptree Heath Essex Also known as the Viviparous Lizard as it has live young, this widespread lizard is the small, very quick brown lizard most frequently seen on commons, heaths, moorland, dry stone walls, embankments and sea cliffs around the British Isles. It is the only species of reptile native to the island of Ireland. It is widespread throughout Europe and indeed its range extends into the Arctic circle. Typical adult size is approx 15cm (including its tail) and coloration is commonly some shade of brown with patterns of spots or stripes. Unusual colour variations are not uncommon, everything from yellow through various shades of green to jet black are encountered. The Common Lizard likes open sunny places, hence the typical habitats described above and is usually found in dry situations although it is strangely a great fan of boggy wet heaths. It feeds predominantly on spiders and insects, and gives birth to tiny jet black live young in August which gradually turn a copper colour before growing up into the typical adult coloration. Common Lizards are protected by law in Great Britain against being killed, injured or sold or traded in any way. In Northern Ireland they are fully protected, this prohibiting killing, injuring, capturing, disturbance, possession or trade.

Goodbye Alfie Alfie the little grey donkey has been staying with me and Leo for a while. We found him in a geocache a few weeks ago, and ever since we have been looking out for a new home for him to travel to. He loves to roam about. Today we found this great place for him to wait for the next cachers to come along and collect him. It was next to a lovely field with lots of nice grass for him to eat. Bye-bye Alfie, we have enjoyed having you stay! More info. Ref: D656_499

Damsel not in distress

Damsel not in distress
Made by sparkeyb
The title is very apt. At first it looked like this beautiful Damselfly was just resting, upon further investigation looked as if it was dead - but no it was caught in a spiders web and was obviously tired from attempting to escape from the sticky trap - Liz managed to free it and it perched on this stem for a few minutes flexing its body and regaining composure before flying away. Well done Liz !! Olympus E620 Zuiko Digital 35mm lens F5.6 @ 1/320 second exposure ISO 100

The Little Train Caz took me and Leo on another geocaching mission today. In one box, we found this cool little orange train. We thought we would leave it in the box for another little cacher to find, but Caz agreed to take our picture with it before we put it back. I've no idea why she sat us all in a tree though!
