This last weekend I went back up to Poole again to carry on to the Chew Valley Bird fair. At the bird fair I tried out a few binoculars and was so impressed by the new Zeiss Conquest HD that I got a pair of the 10x42's.
Before the fair and still in the Poole area we took a walk down to one of the chines. A chine is a steep-sided river valley where the river flows through coastal cliffs to the sea. On the way down in the wooded area I noticed a lizard. He was much bigger than the sand lizards I had seen the other week on the cliffs (link). This one was also green. I don't know if this was a different species or just a different colouration of the sand lizard. Anyone know?
Not much else to report on with the camera still waiting to arrive.
