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.

Common Whitlowgrass,

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.

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:

Bilberry,

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...
