Normally when we talk about the reptiles in London it’s corrupt bankers that are at the forefront of our minds. Thankfully the WWT reserve at Barnes has the sort that are far less likely to fiddle interest rates and bring the country to its knees. I am of course talking about Common Lizards, four of which we saw desperately trying to soak up the few rays of sun that managed to break through the clouds. With low body temperatures they unsurprisingly weren’t that willing to move which was ideal for someone after a few photographs.
The surrounding pools were also home to several Marsh Frogs which were giving an incredible vocal display that has to be heard to be believed. If I’d though about it at the time I would have recorded some audio, but alas I have failed you. More the reason to head back again some time soon.
