Friday and Saturday 16th and 17th April 2021 – Slape and Lancelot and Dalton areas (Birds Foot Sedge and Herb Paris)

Had more beauties today whilst travelling up Slape Lane and into Lancelot Clark Storth. I wanted to check out the Birds Foot Sedge and pleasantly surprised after last years disaster when we had none.  I noticed this sever plants already coming through and fruiting. Also noted Blackcap had returned into lower Lancelot.
