111 with the Kestrel hunting over the railway line when almost dark. Also a few things to look for later when they will be more identifiable e.g. a Callitriche in the ditches, some probably dodgy trees that are probably planted (Holm Oak and Yew), and some mosses in paper packets for another day. My bryophyte knowledge peaked in 1985 but that BBS key is really great.

  1. Hi John - you've leapt into the top ten! Lots of things on your list there that I expect to sort out later, i.e. when they have flowers.
