Exploring the north of Glamorgan
Yes it is, Martin. It is one of my favourite wildflowers. In Cwm Taf Fechan nature reserve, where there is Water Avens and Wood Avens in close proximity, the hybrid between them occurs.
Cheers mark . Is it common or local.
Common. Especially in the upper end of the valleys, close to the limestone.
Cheers mark information is priceless.Did you know there Marsh Helleborine at the Cwm Cadlan Reserve. I noticed it on there web site,
No I didn't. In fact, I didn't know there was a website dedicated to the reserve. Last Friday, in the field between the bypass, the old tramroad that runs down from Hirwaun to the chicken factory roundabout and Penywaun, I was poking about and found a colony of at least thirty Emperor Moth caterpillars feeding on Meadowsweet, but more importantly I saw a female Marsh Fritillary.
