WHITLINGHAM: A couple of new woodland plants

18th February 2017

After my Ringland visit I headed to Whitlingham Woods for a quick walk around before picking Cathy up from the city. Whilst there I noticed some Spurge Laurel, a plant I’ve not recorded here before. Further along I went to check a fern (I’m still looking for Borrer’s Scaly Male Fern here, which was recorded on a vegetation survey years ago) and was surprised to discover it was Soft Shield Fern, only the second time I have seen this species. I just had time to check some Box bushes, finding one of the same galls seen at Catton Park, before heading back.
