Mark Spencer

We will be walking to Enfield Lock and then following the Lea Navigation footpath north into Rammey Marsh. The marsh was badly damaged by fire in 2022, we will be examining the impact upon the flora. We will be hoping to re-find county scarce and rare species such as Anacamptis pyramidalis (Pyramidal Orchid), Dactylorhiza praetermissa (Southern Marsh-orchid), Dactylorhiza fuchsii (Common Spotted-orchid), Lathyrus aphaca (Yellow Vetchling), Ophrys apifera (Bee Orchid) and Populus nigra subsp. betulifolia (Black Poplar). This meeting is suitable for beginners and for more experienced botanists.

Joint with the London Natural History Society

Meet: at 11:00 am at Enfield Lock overground station, on Ordnance Road (TQ36429876).
