Early Common Lizard

Cycling back to Edern this afternoon on some minor lanes I very nearly ran over this female Common Lizard basking in the road. It was very slow moving obviously not having warmed up yet properly in the early spring sunshine. After taking a few photos we carefully placed it out of danger in a sunny spot near a Clawdd for it to retreat into. This is the earliest by far we have seen this species.
