Photo enthusiasts in Largs and Millport have been thrilled by some amazing captures in recent weeks.

Making its first appearance of the year was the rarely spotted phenomenon of the Cumbrae lizard.

The common lizard creatures can be spotted lurking in the undergrowth near the Hush Hush in the north-west of the island.

This marvellous photo was captured by Eddie Williams.

The viviparous lizard is widely distributed throughout Europe and Asia. Its range extends to the north of the Arctic Circle.

It ranges from Ireland to Hokkaido and Sakhalin -  and Cumbrae!

With BBC's Springwatch returning to the box, we thought we would take a look at our old glorious wildlife scene and our camera club members certainly have not disappointed!
