Flower ID Workshop

21st July 2013

On Sunday 21st July we held the first of our workshops funded by the Lottery. The weather was gloriously hot, and many flowers were in bloom. Our usual meadow cranesbill was very abundant but our leader, Tim Kaye, soon had us investigating other plants. We eventually recorded over 60 species of plants, mostly wildflowers, particular special ones were Flowering Rush and Arrowhead (also flowering) in the river, and masses of Purple Loosestife. It was a very informative workshop.
