A lovely coppery coloured common lizard, by Slack Stones, Widdop, early this afternoon. Having seen a couple of common lizards on the Calderdale uplands in recent years, I started thinking how wonderful it would be if adders were present in the area. I’m aware of a population over in Rossendale, which isn’t that far away.
I also saw a wimberry bumblebee (Bombus monticola), that flew into my car and landed on my yellow Christmas tree air freshener. Alas it flew off as I fumbled for the camera.
