Photo: A lizard on my balcony

I like lizards. They do no harm to me and eat little creepy crawlies. There is one which has lost its tail and is about an inch and a half long that sleeps on the wall at the far side of the one habitable room here in the Greek Hovel. I say good night to it as I switch the lights out. It seems to have accepted my presence and no longer runs if I approach its end of the room for whatever reason.

This lizard is a bit longer and has a tail and was just sitting on the balcony here as I worked, staring out at the valley.

I am 100% convinced that I saw a wallaby near Whitchurch in Shropshire tonight

It was very late, nearly eleven at night, and very dark but a large mammal was moving off the  badly lit road ahead of me to my right and off into the fields. I was two or three miles outside Whitchurch in Shropshire, heading back to the Welsh Hovel and I swear that the animal was bouncing along like a Kangaroo or Wallaby. I am convinced that it was the latter.
