A Lake and a Wood

One of my group lead 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.

Common Whitlowgrass, Llysiau’r-bystwn ar or Erophila verna

Rue-leaved Saxifrage, Tormaen tribys or 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.

Bulbous Buttercup, Blodyn-ymenyn bondew or Ranunculus bulbosus


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:
Glyn Tarell near Brecon

We saw plenty of good things including:
Bilberry, Llusen or Vaccinium myrtillus

Yellow Archangel, Marddanhadlen felen or Lamiastrum galeobdolon

Marsh Valerian, Triaglog y gors or Valeriana dioica

... and a Liverwort in full display:

Not forgetting the Bluebells...

And we heard a Cuckoo...
