SHARPP recording along the Banffshire coast, Portgordon to Portsoy

Banffshire 8th – 9th June 2024
recording general
led by
Flora Donald

Everyone is very welcome for a weekend of botanical recording in and around the coastal towns of Banffshire, looking for notable Scottish plants not seen since 2000 (SHARPP). With over thirty species of interest, there will be treasures to refind for all experience levels, ranging from mulleins and mints to pondweeds and rushes. Eyebrights optional! We will explore a variety of habitats, from beaches to coastal grassland and fringes of arable fields. There will also be opportunities to update inventories in monads not visited for the past ten years. Please note descents to beaches can be steep; easier terrain options will be available (but inland).
