Extra plants at Holme

I didn't find the Rue-leaved Saxifrage or the Spring Vetch which Chris and Andy found (great photos, and of the longhorn moth) but did find Field Woodrush Luzula campestris in flower in the dunes (very small plants). I also found a few fertile spikes of Field Horsetail Equisetum arvense near The Firs.
On the way home I spotted Bulbous Buttercup and Charlock by the side of the road just out of our patch, south of the windmill on Holme Road, Ringstead.
Many of the road verges at present are smothered with very vigorous plants of Alexanders; hopefully this won't stop other species appearing later in the year.
