Basking Slow Worm

There is a population of slow worms at Rowney Warren but they aren't always easy to find. On this occasion though it was a warm but overcast day and I wandered off-piste to where I'd found one basking a couple of years ago and instantly found this one doing exactly the same. I hadn't realised how long they can be - this one seemed to go on forever.

I think this is a female (dark flanks, narrow head, thin dorsal stripe, significant tapering below the vent)?
