More recently ie: yesterday Kojak and I, teamed up with North Downs uber-patcher Steve Gale HERE and we had a great day looking for chalk grassland and chalk stream specialities before the Capitalists wipe them out too. We had a difficult time finding some specialities as a lot of the grassland was parched due to Capitalists' induced climate chaos that's meant it hasn't rained for seven weeks so for one of the few times since the fucking pre-Cambrian it's not going to piss on those pricks knocking balls back and forth at Wimbeldon. Here's a few of the highlights:
Small Teasle - along by the River Mole
Arrowhead- in the river
Branched Bur-reed- another species on the River Mole
Water Figwort- the winged stalk is diagnostic from Common Figwort
Carline Thistle- a classic chalk grassland species
Corn Mint- a lifer for Steve. A lifer for the guide is always a top day.
Wood Sage and Marjarom
Female Chalkhill Blue
A worn Onocera semirubella?
