Following a warm, sunny week Sunday 25th was a dry day - perfect for the walk to look at the wildflowers around the reserve. A group of around 12 met on the causeway. I talked briefly about the type of plants to expect to see growing on unimproved, neutral soil, and that the smaller the plant, the more quickly it is likely to disappear. Species diversity is inversely proportionate to infertility of the soil.
