|The very first of the year in flower|
|Common Rock Rose|
Also covering this territory I am always on the look out for the rare Birds Foot Sedge. I did manage to find one new location which has five clumps.
|Small Pearl Bordered Fritillary|
A new site for the Tree Pipit was recorded and I did manage to see three Long Tailed Tits in the same tree as a pair of Willow Warblers. Also a new site for the Chiffchaff. Also yaffling today was a Green Woodpecker and calling Redpoll overhead.
Other plants recorded today were: Squinancywort, Limestone Bedstraw, Dropwort, Pignut, Birds Foot Trefoil, Slender St. John's Wort, Tormentil, Eyebright (sp), Wild Thyme, Broad Leaved Helliborine, Lily Of The Valley (gone over of course) Mountain Melick Grass.
|Slender St. John's Wort (Hypericum pulchrum)|
|This is a weird "unusual" thing, obviously a early day Broad Leaved|
Helliborine well grooved leaves and well rounded and well bitten!
