Important Botanical Site Found in Peterborough

Sarah Lambert has sent news of a botanical hotspot associated with the site of the former Peterborough East Railway Station, New Fletton (VC31). For the full details see Sarah's Blog.

The two most exciting finds are the Red Data List Wall Bedstraw (Galium parisiense), only the second site in the county, and the very rare casual Southern Beard-grass (Polypogon maritimus), the first record for Huntingdonshire. See below for photos of both taken from Sarah's blog.
