Whitecliff and Clarkson’s Woods

Added on 5th April 2017 by Audrey Barnes


Wood rush is in flower around Clarkson’s wood.

I found a tiny wood rush plant with tiny star like flowers close to the Beck.


[Wood-sorrel, Great Wood-rush (Luzula sylvatica), Hairy Wood-rush (Luzula pilosa) with the tiny star-like flowers is uncommon in our area, a male flowered willow (probably goat willow) – willows have separate male and female plants although occasionally flowers can be bisexual.]
