Botany Study Group field trip

Heart of the Levels Area Group.

Today our Study Group is going to a nature reserve near Buckland St Mary in Somerset.
We have around 17 members  most of whom come to all the trips.
As usual Anne Bebbington has already made a preliminary survey and as the cold weather is holding back flowering plants we will be mostly doing vegetative identifications.
The site is a mixture of damp neutral grassland with a small stream and an area of woodland. Boots are recommended!
We will be stopping for our packed lunch in the local village hall and finished about 3.30 pm ( British Summer Time since yesterday)
Weather clouded over and about 1 degree C and a bit breezy. Will report more soon.
