Dryopteris aemula sites in the New Forest

Following new sightings by Alison Bolton and Mike Rowe, Ashley & Jo Basil and myself went to see 2 new sites for Dryopteris aemula in the New Forest
The first site was in Brately Inclosure which, at first sight, seemed an unlikely place
However we found, within an area of some 200 x 200 yards, about 200 plants looking very healthy

The next site we went to was Norley Inclosure, where we found possibly 10 plants

This brings the number of sites for Dryopteris aemula in the New Forest, known to us, to 6
