Late news.......

Further vegetation monitoring was carried out in the College valley last week  A small number of interesting species were seen including a large heath butterfly and a number of northern eggar moths.  The higlight was finding a relatively large patch of staghorn club-moss in an area of felled woodland to the south of Mount Hooley.  The patch was about 20m long by about 2m wide and on an old track.

i have added the record to the BSBI record scheme.
