Field meeting reports

Meeting date: 20 April 2013

(Leader: Helen Proctor)

Three members met at Great Marklye in TQ52W, where we explored woodland and the old railway bank.

Two more members joined us in the afternoon.  Down the lane, a profusion of Anemone nemorosa (Wood Anemone) and Primula vulgaris (Primrose) carpeted the steep banks.  At Orchard Farm a very brambly wet meadow produced young leaves of Lychnis flos-cuculi (Ragged-robin) and under trees a large patch of Chrysosplenium oppositifolium (Opposite-leaved Golden-saxifrage) was flowering.
