|Dryopteris carthusiana in Martinshaw Wood|
We will be recording in monad SK5006 which includes part of Martinshaw Wood to the west of the M1, Pear Tree Wood and part of Ratby. Both of the woods are owned by the Woodland Trust. This monad is mostly plantation woodland of various ages, a few arable fields with hedgerows, a stream, roadside verges and some urban areas. As it contains a good variety of habitats, it should provide a large number of records. The focus will be on the woodland flora, including ferns, which may have some interesting species, and on the roadside verges and urban areas where we hope to find some interesting early flowering plants often overlooked in surveys.
Meet in the car park at Martinshaw Wood off Markfield Road, Ratby at SK509066. If you would like more details or to arrange car-sharing, please email or phone me on 07594 302127.
