Records from Ramsey (VC31)
Martin Lovell has just forwarded a useful batch of records for the Ramsey area. Highlights include some well established stands of Winter Aconite (Eranthis hyemalis), a new tetrad and the first records for the hectad for over 30 years; a new location for Lungwort (Pulmonaria officinalis), which along with a recent record from Owen Mountford are the first of this garden escape since the 1970's; Stinking Hellebore (Helleborus foetidus) in a copse off Hollow Lane, a new tetrad; and, Deadly Nightshade (Atropa belladonna), Lesser Periwinkle (Vinca minor) and Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) from Bury Fen, all new hectad records.
