The Botanical Cornwall Group is hoping to be able to publish a new county flora in the next couple of years so there are several places that need to be up-dated for species and this is one of several in our general area of interest.
These field meetings are open to anyone who is interested in wild flowers and plants. Generally the groups are quite small so you get the opportunity to learn a lot! And we do record other things if people are confident, such as birds and mammals.
Another Botanical Cornwall Group field meeting, this time covering a favourite walking area of our own group above Crackington Haven near the north coast.
Hilly area as we already know! Ian is hoping to cover two squares: SX1595 & SX1596 walking along the lanes and footpaths.
Please see their website (link) for further details.
More botanizing but very much in one of our favoured areas and we do record other things!
We have visited Laneast Down before with Brian many years ago and I remember Mary Atkinson recording some very interesting plants because this is an area of lowland heath, parts of which have not (never?) been ploughed. We walked up there again on one of the New Year muddy boots and mince pies walks that Dave organised.
