Guernsey is famous for its orchid meadows, shaded hedge banks, cliff tops and coastal heaths. There will be a mix of excursions to interesting sites, recording trips and evening talks or workshops. Excursions and recording visits will cover the island and species that we might see include Anacamptis laxiflora (Loose-flowered Orchid), Asplenium x microdon (Moore's Spleenwort or Guernsey Fern), Hypericum linariifolium (Toadflax-leaved St John's-wort), Isoetes histrix (Land Quillwort), Ophioglossum lusitanicum (Least Adder's-tongue) and Ophioglossum azoricum (Small Adder's-tongue).
