It appears I am not perfect. I know. Calm down. Deep breath.
You see, I saw a pair of Zootoca vivipara (Common lizards) in the garden back in 2005 and 2007 but they are quick little beggars and I never had a camera handy. Pity really.
The thing is I was just going through my (don't laugh) index cards and saw the one with this information on. I stared at it and then thought "oh yeah" which shows I have too much junk in my head. I know my late sister had some in her garden around 2004 and that's about a quarter mile from where I live.
I'm glad I kept day books and index cards or I might of thought I'd imagined seeing them!
