Interesting discoveries in the hills
Whilst walking the path in the plain between Moolieve and Wee Binnian, something quite interesting caught my eye. Sitting on a boulder was a tiny "Common" Lizard. It's grey-ish brown dorsal surface provided perfect camouflage against the peat and heather. To my surprise, it was quite placid and didn't run off when I approached it to get a better look. On closer inspection I noticed it had a dark stripe running down the entire length of the spine and had yellow spots on it's side. After a while it scurried off the rock and disappeared into the heather. This was the first time I've ever spotted a lizard in the Mournes, hopefully I'll come across some more in the future! In my opinion they certainly do not deserve the title, "Common"! Has anyone else on MV encountered the beastie's before?
