Ruislip Woods

Middlesex 6th April 2024
recording general
led by
Mark Spencer

We will be aiming to record regional rarities in this important, but increasingly degraded, series of ancient woodlands. Several of our target species, such as Melampyrum pratense (Common Cow-wheat), Achillea ptarmica (Sneezewort), Carex pulicaris (Flea Sedge), Eleocharis acicularis (Needle Spike-rush), Genista anglica (Petty Whin) and Pedicularis sylvatica (Lousewort) are now restricted to a very small number of highly fragmented populations and may become regionally extinct in the near future. This meeting is suitable for beginners and for more experienced botanists. Please bring a packed lunch.

Meet at 11:00am outside the Water's Edge Pub, Reservoir Road, Ruislip Common (TQ08648919).
