Lizards at Oxwich

Wall Lizard (Podarcis muralis) has apparently been established in Gower since the 1960's and it seems they're doing reasonably well. I saw this one not too far from one of the sites where the species was first introduced, though I didn't have the right equipment or time to get a decent shot.
This Vivparous Lizard (Zootoca (Lacerta) vivipara) at the same site was much more approachable.

beautiful pictures Barry, would you mind letting me know where the P. muralis was seen, I'd love to know!
