Botrychium lunaria in April in the New Forest

Ashley Basil and myself went to see if we could find Botrychium lunaria in the known site at Appleslade Bottom.

We found about 15 small plants

We also found some colonies of Ophioglossum vulgatum

We were a little surprised that both these ferns could be seen at this time of year. We will go back at the end of April and see what they look like and how many we can find
