Went out field herping today in the Kelling Heath area of north Norfolk and saw this lizard. At first I thought it was the Common Lizard and am still leaning towards that because Norfolk doesn't have a sand lizard community. However this is a very patterned specimen and in someways it resembles a female sand lizard patterning so I was wondering what you all think :Na_Na_Na_Na:

It's a common lizard - the also have ocelli of a sort, though not as pronounced as Sand Lizards. The body proportions, head shape and pattern all say Common Lizard; someone else may comment on the range - afaik Sand Lizards don't range into N Norfolk.
