I had a useful day today recording in the partial tetrads NG37K (1 previous record) and NG36P (no previous records) plus considerable time in NG37Q where I was able to re-find three species for the 10km square NG37 not recorded since before 2000: Hymenophyllum wilsonii (Wilson’s Filmy-fern – last record 1970), Oreopteris limbosperma (Lemon-scented Fern – last record 1968) and Sambucus nigra (Elder – last record 1996).
