Now everyone can see a Sand Lizard – thanks to Simon

Now everyone can see a sand lizard – thanks to Simon!

By his magical chain saw skills, Formby’s Simon Archer has created a sand lizard carving on the stump of a tall pine tree that had to be felled after storms earlier in the year. The tree had threatened the kiosk at the Victoria Road entrance to the National Trust estate.

This means that all visitors will have a chance to see what this highly endangered reptile looks like, for sightings on the Sefton dunes are now very rare indeed. Unique as the UK’s only egg laying lizard, the eggs are laid in burrows in the warm sand in May and June to hatch between August and early October.

Simon joked that whilst the real lizards can shed their tails in times of danger, his lizard at least had a tail that would not come off and it would not hibernate in wintertime either!
