Moonwort monitoring in the New Forest 2019

Jo and Ashley Basil and Roger Golding went out to Linwood to do annual monitoring of the Moonwort. They found 58 plants, none were very big, the maximum size was 100mm. Last years count was about 30 plants, but the bracken was up then so it was more difficult to find them. This year they looked full and well hydrated, last year’s were rather dry. They did not think there has been any change in the population and they were all are in the same area. Jo found a new patch of Adders tongue which were bigger and more developed than had been seen on previous years.
