As you will notice my recent posts have taken a 'Botanical' slant to them. The Birding has been very exciting (with wader passage and some cracking raptors) and is still my priority early morning but the I've relaxed into a casual look at the Flora. The more I look the less I know! Always good, even with birding I 'mis ID'd ' a Teal for a Mallard the other day because I was too casual.
Apologies to proper botanists as I'm just starting (or re-starting).
(In some cases I've put pairs of photos to include the leaf shapes as well.)
Think this might be Prickly Restharrow
(may be ssp stenophyllus)
I thought the Oycs had lost a chick but happily both were present on Sunday!
Lesser (Field) Bindweed
Great plant, if you google this you find a squat purple, typical Gentian. However our sub species septentrionalis is rather different.
Sea Mayweed (Chamomile)
Scentless Mayweed (Chamomile)
Tripleurospermum maritima (ssp inodorum)
