Trent Country Park

Middlesex 13th July 2024
recording general
led by
Mark Spencer

Joint with the London Natural History Society.

Trent Country Park is part of the former, much larger, Enfield Chase. The site has extensive areas of woodland, grassland and some aquatic habitats but has been poorly recorded in recent years. As well as general recording, we will also be aiming to refind regional rarities such as Campanula rotundifolia (Harebell), Dactylorhiza praetermissa (Southern Marsh-orchid), Dryopteris carthusiana (Narrow Buckler-fern) and Hypericum humifusum (Trailing St John's-wort). The site also has a number of veteran Malus sylvestris (Crab Apple), a regionally scarce but often over-recorded plant, that need verifying. This meeting is suitable for beginners and for more experienced botanists. Please bring a packed lunch.

Meet at 11:0am outside the entrance of Cockfosters Underground station on Cockfosters Road, Cockfosters (TQ28099637).
