Bog-based Botany


I am a novice botanist but I'm trying hard to make some progress in this area and a dearth of upland plants is in the process of being rectified. Four new ones today were Bogbean (above), Round-leaved Sundew (below), Common Cotton-grass and Dwarf Birch. This moves me onto 1126 for my pan-species list and my 300th plant species. This all coincided with some epic birding. A breeding plumaged Black-throated Diver preceded Merlin, Hen Harriers, Golden Eagle, Greenshank, Red Kite and a Marsh Harrier! Madness.
