Leaders: Bruce Brown and Sheila Wynn (Joint Meeting with the Bradford Botany Group)
Maximum Number 10
Meet for a 10:30 start in the public car park next to the Sailing Club at BD23 5ED (SE064640). Turn north off the B6265, Grassington to Pateley Bridge road. Toilets available at the Sailing Club.
The area around the reservoir has a varied flora including a large (2000+) population of Adder’s-tongue Ophioglossum vulgatum and other ferns, a variety of orchids including Northern Marsh-orchid, Dactylorhiza purpurella Common Twayblade Neottia ovata and Autumn Gentian Gentianella amarella. The (hopefully) receding water line of the reservoir provides an interesting selection of drawdown zone species including Mudwort Limosella aquatica etc.
