SLOW-WORMS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

Shel­tered by a slight in­cline or the base of a heather shrub, and bask­ing in the warm­ing glow of spring sun, is a slen­der snake-like form. Yet this is no ser­pent, but a lizard lack­ing vis­i­ble limbs. Loathe to slither hur­riedly into con­ceal­ment, Slow-worms typ­i­cally grant close perusal. And re­turn the stare with in­tense pale eyes.
