2020 County Report for South Somerset
Stephen ParkerDespite the lockdowns caused by the Covid-19 pandemic recoding in VC5 still went ahead all be it in somewhat reduced from previous years. Unfortunately the Somerset Rare Plants Group, the main recording group in Somerset did not hold any formal field meeting. They initiated several projects for members during the year, these included recording the date for First Flowering, this was organised and coordinated by Simon Leach. We have also launched an online mistletoe recording project. Individual members submitted record to Stephen Parker and these are now being entered on to Mapmate and then sent to the BSBI distribution database.
