More Signs of Spring

Jonathan Shanklin has kindly sent another batch of records gathered on a Cambridge Bryology Group outing to Huntingdonshire. This time the group spent time in Stilton and Washingley. Given the focus of the trip was bryophytes and the limitations of the time of year, not a bad list was assembled and this included the second county record of Early Crocus (Crocus tommasinianus) naturalised from plantings along the footpath past the fish ponds at Washingley.

This species is past its best now but here is a photo taken a couple of weeks ago in Oulton churchyard (VC63).
