Meeting date: 1 August 2015

(Leaders: Roy Wells & Ruth Eastwood)

The aim of the walk was to contribute to the new Flora and to move TQ43H over the 300 species mark. We visited the southernmost part of TQ43H and the northerly edge of TQ43G. Eleven SBRS members set off and we didn’t get very far before we encountered a spoil heap in the golf course car park. This gained us five new Flora records. Later on a pond proved profitable. Overall we had success, adding sixteen new Flora records to TQ43G including Eleocharis palustris (Common Spike Rush) and Isolepis setacea (Bristle Club-rush). We achieved our aim, and at the end of the day TQ43H had a total of 316 species recorded.
