Sand lizards of Sefton

Lacerta agilis male 2011 G2

The Sefton dunes are one of the last British strongholds of the sand lizard (Lacerta agilis), the country’s only egg laying lizard.  It was once common throughout the dunes and heathlands of southern England, but is today restricted to scattered populations in Dorset, Surrey and here on the Sefton Coast.
