Flintshire BSBI at Rhuddlan – again –

The under-recorded tetrads round Rhuddlan have been given a workout in the past three years!  Here is the third in the series, the north-eastern tetrad, encompassing a retail park, some housing and adjacent fields and lanes.  Quite ordinary countryside by Flintshire standards, but you never know what you might find, and there is always something to amuse the adventurous botanist.

We recorded a respectable 157 species between the three of us, including five species each of Geranium and Veronica from roadside grasslands.

Here are some photos:
