April 2011

Southern end of St Ouens Bay in the sand dunes/broom

Alison Cottier - 3/4/2011

Saw three in total, was taken aback as I have never seen such large lizards in the UK and so brightly coloured, they were beautiful!

Beside footpath between St Brelade's and Beauport

Greg Nation - 15/4/2011

Spotted while on holiday in Jersey - It was in the long grass beside the path (near the St Brelade's end) I'd never seen a green lizard before and was surprised at how well it blended into the surroundings.

We see a Green Lizard every year around this time, when the weather is hot and sunny, I suppose we have seen them for the past 4 or so years. I have a lovely photo of the one I took on 17th April this year.

Noirmont point

Russ Allchin - 22/4/2011

Sitting on a bench to the right of the carpark , heard a noise in the gorse, nice shiny green lizard with dark head came out, aprox 8-10 inches long, walked in full view about 5 feet from us, even poked its head out to check me out when i went to get a closer look. It watched me for about 20 seconds then turned and ran off into the gorse.

Ps, not seen one anywhere near that big before.


Millais, St. Ouen
