Plant monitoring

Trying to identify Grasses
One of the sites in late spring
A species of Buttercup? Identified later over a cup of coffee!
Site 2 along a roadside

This year the club started a 5 year project  studying the plant life in  5 different locations within an area designated by the group “Plantlife”. Over the years we have to assess each area for the plants growing within it  in Spring and late summer , noting any changes that may have occurred such as  intensity of grazing. Unfortunately the owner of one of our chosen sites has not been co-operative and we may need to find another site. This is proving to be  a very interesting survey and has brought out our inner botanists.
