The flora of Newton Links - Long Nanny

Sunday 24 July, 10.30am-3pm

A visit to the dunes, slacks and other coastal habitats of part of the north Northumberland coast, which contain great floral diversity. Among many other species we should see Pyramidal Orchid Anacamptis pyramidalis, Lesser Meadow Rue Thalictrum minus, Sea Wormwood Seriphidium maritimum and (given the interests of the leader) numerous eyebrights Eurphrasias.

Meet at Newton Links pay & display car park (OS grid ref NU235260 or nearest postcode NE66 3DF), which is 1km north of High Newton-on-Sea.

Leader: Chris Metherell is the botanical recorder for vice-county 68 (North Northumberland).

Accompanied children 10+ welcome.
