Henbane - Refound in VC64

So this was exciting. The first record of Henbane (Hyoscyamus niger) for VC64 for over 50 years, and only the forth record. It is a species that seems to be in widespread decline nationally.

It was doing rather well in a potato crop at Newthorpe, east of Leeds, with over 60 plants distributed between two field corners.
