2020 County Report for Berwickshire

Robin Cowe

This year’s recording was mostly centered around Chirnside and the river Whiteadder in the spring. As the year went on I opened up my recording activities which yielded some good finds in Genista anglica on a forestry track near Abbey St Bathans and Filago minima at the old quarry near Reston. I continued ongoing projects on roadsides and began to map the better of the agricultural weed flora near Chirnside. Having the use of the database for the first time this year, I was able to detect and search woods that had never been recorded before. One wood near Fogo turned up Goodyera repens in a new 10K. A little over two thousand records were collected by eight recorders.
