Friday 11th August 2017 - Dalton Crags 0900hrs to 1030hrs
Decided to check out the Crags and I wanted to check a lovely "scollie" which I thought may have turned out to be a "Crispum" but no it was not to be, as you can see with these photos which clearly show the "sori" on the rear of the frond.

Check next photo which clearly shows Sori on the rear of the frond.

Also not to be outdone we had a lovely showing of the commoner Hypericum Perforatum and I could not resist taking this photo which to me looked absolutely beautiful showing both the fresh and gone over.

Thursday 10th August 2017 - Hutton Roof 1500hrs to 1630hrs
Trying to check out more about the "black spot" on the same helleborine, checking notes and the only thing I can come up with is possibly "Botrytis" which does not only come through in spots but far more variable - If it is this it is caused through water retention. I did also note a "mullusc" hanging on to the rear of the plant. The following photos are not good but do at least show the "black spot" disease or whatever it is!
