Thursday 16th October: Meadow Plant Survey Report

Readers may recall that a while ago I tagged along on a Creeping Marshwort survey conducted by Dr Judith Webb and fellow expert Camilla Lambrick. Well, the report is now finished and can be found here. Basically the plant is doing well despite the couple of recent years when the Meadow was flooded all year (ah happy days!) which whilst being excellent for birds is bad for plants as it kills them off.

In addition to the Creeping Marshwort we managed to find plenty of the rare (and tiny!) flower Mudwort which the two expert botanists got very excited about.

It's good to know that the Meadow's plant life is doing well. It certainly keeps me occupied during the long lean birdless summer months.
