A skink glimpsed in the wood heap in the front of our garden.

From the markings on its side, I expect it's Oligosoma nigriplantare.

The plant in the foreground is the garden weed, cleavers, Galium aparine.

Its head was stuck in an old leaf folded up with spider web, which was why it was out in the middle of the path when we found it. I removed its hat (which was well stuck on) and it scuttled away.

This is the only photo I got before it scuttled away into the grass. You can see a short section of the skink's tail right in the middle of the photo. It will be a common skink or a McCann's skink.
