Last week we had a plant walk at the nature center.
Wood Crane’s-bill (Geranium sylvaticum) Thank you for correcting me Elma.
Sidebells Wintergreen (Pyrola secunda)
Round-leaved Wintergreen (pyrola rotundifolia) – a decoction of the leaves can be used as an antiseptic wash or to treat skin complaints.
False Lilly of the Valley (Maianthemum bifolium)
Mountain Everlasting or Cat’s-foot (Antennaria dioica)
There were also many Mayflies emerging from the lake
and we found a Fen Raft Spider (Dolomedes plantarius) a rarity in the UK.
