The "not so common" Common Lizard
The "not so common" Common Lizard!!
Spotted this Happy Chappy on the Wicklow Way, just after the bridge over the Dargle in-between Maulin and Djouce. "The common or viviparous lizard (Zootoca vivipara) is Irelandís only native species of reptile. This fascinating reptile gives birth to live young, a rarity in the reptile world, where most species lay eggs in order to reproduce. The lizard resides in areas such as bogs, coastal sites, grasslands and uplands is about 13cm long and hunts invertebrates like insects, spiders and snails".

Mizen Head
Ah yes - thank you for considering this - and of course if I had watched the end of the show, instead of turning it off perplexed, they would have told me :)

Well that's moved towards the top of my list of places to visit.

Mizen Head footbridge
The answer is in the title.
A fast search on Google with "bridges of ireland" gives few results :

Across deep waters - bridges of Ireland, a book written by Michael Barry (1985) shows the same bridge on its cover.

A stranger in my own land?
Seeing as mountainviews now features islands, and many of you are so well travelled in these parts, can anyone tell me where the pictured place is? The image is part of a filler section in episode 3 of "Great Irish Lighthouses", currently on the RTE player. It's close to a section where the weather reporting of lighthouse keepers is discussed.

I shamefully can't name it, having considered carrick-a-rede and duly discounted it after a decent google maps review.

Anyone care to put me out of my misery? Is it even Ireland :) I may hang my head in shame.
