Mousetail habitat, King's Sedgemoor.
Very diminutive and looking a lot like grass if one doen't look closely.
It was surprisingly abundant in this gateway.
Small individual plants on patches of mud like this, is what I expected to see...
..but there were lots of dense clumps of it.
A really bizarre flower and I reckon you don't need me to
explain to you why it's called the Mousetail!
I love the fact that a water droplet has formed a mirror in this photo.
How cool is that!
This afternoon I went to see if I could find any Early Purple Orchids on patch. I hadn't seen any in one of the usual places for a couple of years after the ditches had been re-dug and all the spoil piled up on top of them. But after an extensive search I'm pleased to say I found four..which is a whole lot better than none.
I also saw this male Orange Tip
I've got a few more things lined up waiting to go on here (Not including a Great Spotted B******d! Sadly) so I'll have to 'get me finger out' this week!
