Escape to the Seaside

I'm sure I am not the only VC Recorder who feels pangs of guilt when they leave their county to record elsewhere. So its always nice when work takes you away somewhere new, particularly if it involves a trip to the seaside. I was lucky to find a few hours to walk down to the beach at Drigg in Cumbria and enjoy some plant species that I don't normally see in my landlocked counties.

Sea Bindweed (Calystegia soldanella)

Sea Holly (Eryngium maritimum)

Sea Spurge (Euphorbia paralias)

The next two do occur in both of my VCs, but it is always nice to find them.

Bloody Crane's-bill (Geranium sanguineum)

Royal Fern (Osmunda regalis)
