Ivy Broomrape - Another Huntingdonshire Site
Barry Dickerson has just found a new location for Ivy Broomrape (Orobanche hederae) on Cambridge Street, St Neots. Based on the photo provided it seems well established. This is only the second record for the county, and it must surely be a deliberate introduction. This a species that is well known around Cambridge in VC29, but the nearest and only other VC31 record is from Godmanchester.
