2022 County Report for Renfrewshire

Keith Watson

2022 was another good year for recording in Renfrewshire, with over 8000 records made. A wide range of local recorders were involved in making such a good total, including members of the informal local botany network. Jim Blackwood continues to be active in the Lochwinnoch area, and Malclom Macneill has extended his urban foraying into more of Renfrewshire producing a number of interesting casual finds.
Neighbouring recorders Peter Wiggins and Michael Philip have again been active in the vice-county, and Michael helped organise bramble workshops, which Angus Hannah kindly led and put in much time and effort. This has resulted in an increasing knowledge of local brambles and hopefully this will continue.
Further information on interesting records and recording activities is provided in the newsletters on the BSBI local botany webpages.
