Flora Survey

Flora survey completed by Chris Kennedy, BTCV on 13th August,
2008.


We could not complete an accurate survey due to the weather but
did identify a small number of trees (willow-goat and crack,
sycamore, hawthorn, ash, and elder).


Any conservation work done in the future I would ensure more trees
are planted such as oak and silver birch.


Silver birch are excellent trees in terms of conservational value. I
would also plant some alders if possible as these will enrich the soil
greatly.


Wildflowers we found:-
                                  Sneezewort
                                  Redshank
                                  White dead nettle
                                  Mayweed
                                  Shepherds purse
