A Lake and a Wood

One of my group led a walk for the Talgarth Walking Festival at Llangorse Lake on Monday with myself backing up. This yielded some first records for some time from the churchyard wall – including Erophila verna and Saxifraga tridactylites.

We also saw Ranunuculus bulbosus - recorded before for the meadows around the lake - but not very often. It later turned up at the meeting point for yesterday's meeting - again not recorded there (in Brecon) for a long time.

Then yesterday we went to record in and around a woodland in Glyn Tarell - of which we got a great view later in the day:

We saw plenty of good things including:
Vaccinium myrtillus
Yellow Archangel,
Marddanhadlen felen
Lamiastrum galeobdolon

Marsh Valerian,
Triaglog y gors
Valeriana dioica
... and a Liverwort in full display:
Not forgetting the Bluebells...

And we heard a Cuckoo...
