Creeping Cinquefoil and Creeping Buttercup added

26th Jan
Bryophyte survey with Central Scotland recording team, recording over 70 species of Bryophyte, not all of which I have recorded yet, having reconstructed the list from memory. The day started out so wet and cold that I didn't bring a camera! Took the year list up to 152, not counting those I may have seen and not remembered.

See story Bryophyte Bonanza

27th Jan

28th Jan
Finished the fourth week on 153 species with the addition of Atrichum undulatum from the field collection box
