Scaly Things

During our recent walks, we not only observed small and large birds, but also other little creatures who enjoyed the warm spring sun.

On a stroll along the banks of the Danube and some oxbow lakes near Petržalka, we stumbled across this lovely Sand Lizard.sand lizard

Up on the hill Devínska Kobyla, we found an Eastern Green Lizard, also basking.green lizard

He, or she?, was in the company of some Slow Worms.slowworm

We also went to the marvellous national park Donauauen, a huge area of floodplain forests between the Austrian-Slovak border and Vienna. Plenty of birdlife was to be seen, but this little gem too, a Peacock Butterfly.Peacock butterfly
