First slowworm of the year

While gardening, I noticed a slow-worm in the overgrown border. It was not moving and I was not sure if it was alive at first, as I had been causing quite a bit of disturbance.

I carefully stroked the slow-worm and it moved its head slightly.

After a while it glided slowly in the opposite direction. this charming leg-less lizard is a beneficial garden inhabitant feeding on small slugs and other invertebrates
