He's was so determined to get to the U.K. Great photo.

Its an harmless gheko,lizzard.They survive off small insects..mosquitos and the like and are considered to be good luck in some area of the continent where its warm.Most houses/villas have them and they keep the likes of spiders etc under control.

Well said, henry,

Is this another illegal immigrant via France? Does he intend to claim benefits?

Great photo, Rev.

For those concerned for its welfare, I left the car's windows open for a few hours after taking the photo. I've not seen it since, so hope it's escaped. Given the warmer climes it came from, it will probably survive our summer without too much difficulty, but will struggle in the winter, sadly.
Thanks for the comment, henry7 - I was quite surprised it sat there long enough for me to get close enough to take any photos. They usually rush for cover as soon as you come near, but I was able to open the door, get in the car, and take a few shots before it moved.

I once got one that was in the bottom of a cardboard box that had come from China.

Not sure he'll feel at home around Wigan but, hey, vive la différence!
