Frightening the lizards

Today we saw three lizards, each was an Iberian wall lizard with yellow stripes along the length of its body. They are often easy to spot first thing in the morning, lying in a patch of sun to heat up. Sometimes they lay on the log pile, other times beside a terracotta plant pot. That’s where they were today, and that’s why we saw them – because workmen came today to install new external metal shutters on the bedroom windows.
