Stopped at Compton Beach this morning on our way to work, walked to near the cliff edge and looked out at the sea.  My eye was caught by a black head in the water which then disappeared.  Paul went and got the binoculars from out the car.  When it popped back up again Paul confirmed it was a seal.  There were in fact two of them, never seen seals off the Island before so went to work in a really good mood.

Five-lined skink.  He is chief of insect control at my new raised beds.  Here he is, on the job, patrolling the borders.

I know we are in a global economy because my favorite gardening hat, purchased in the United States, was made in China by a Swiss company and has a label in Spanish.  (They all deserve their piece of the pie, wouldn't you agree? We are all in this world together.)

Another lizard, this is an anole (pronounce it "uh-KNOLL").  They are capable of changing color from brown to bright green.  They rarely or never seem to be trying to match color with what they are sitting on.  Nevertheless, they are also great insect hunters.

I also found one of their little eggs, which they lay in the leaf litter.  Mama anole does not tend the eggs, the warm soil is enough.  I put the egg back after taking the picture of course.

Baby anole picture!

This guy is tiny, the distance between front and back legs is less than 2 cm.  The egg that I posted a picture of a few days ago is now empty, so I am guessing that egg is now this little guy.  I'm calling him Egbert (and handing out virtual cigars). The babies tend to stay close to where they hatch, so I likely will see him throughout the summer.

Mr. D, do you know any bee keepers? they may be interested in this swarm.

I do, an old work colleague! However, the swarm was was actually a week or 2 ago and they didn't hang around for very long. Funnily around 20mins before they arrived Mrs Dog was joking about us getting trapped in the shed by the bumble bees nesting in one of the compost bins  :D They've moved out of the bin now and into a corner of my greenhouse, between the wall and a large planter - did the same last year and apart from distracting me from working as I get drawn in to watching their comings and goings are very welcome.

One of our plot holders that had been clearing an overgrown section of their plot recently was bitten by a snake. Considering our location, next to David Lloyd sports club in Enfield, a bit of a rarity. no idea what sort it was as their English  is not that good, It did require a trip to A&E for them.
