Back and blue

Posted by Graeme Lyons , Tuesday, 6 September 2011 16:41

After eight months, my slipped disk has reared its ugly head, hence the dearth of posts over the last week. Today was my first day back at work since Thursday. Steve, Alex and I went to look at a small area that we manage to discuss the future of the site. The site is fairly small and simple with M25, W16 and some dense stands of Bracken. Within the area of M25, small numbers of Marsh Gentian can be found and Steve found one today. I was pleased to see this scarce plant still present on the site (and it was also a new species for me!). I was surprised at how big the flower was, quite a stunner. It's not yet fully opened and I have to say the camera hasn't really picked up the deep blue of the petals. My updated list stands at 3610.
