Yep, 'pollen horn' is better. It's a mix of dried nectar (basically, sugar) and pollen. A few days after arriving in a more humid climate like Britain, it washes off when they bathe and preen.

Wingbar pattern looks better for Eurasian to me too.

What altitude did you see it at? The higher, the more likely Eurasian; and also more likely in conifers, with Short-toed preferring broadleaves.

This is where I'd disagree. You have to sign up to it first to...

I'd not be surprised - wrens will eat anything small enough for them to catch. Most lizards are too large for that, but a recent hatchling is probably small enough.
