Sunday 31st October

Meet Taunton (VC5) Park-and-Ride (ST2070 2552) at 10.30am for 11am start. Parking is on right hand side just before the barriers. Booking is essential, please contact Simon if you wish to come. We’ll need to start promptly at 11am as this is the day after the clocks change, so it will be getting dark sooner than expected! Aim to finish by 4pm. We will do a similar circuit as in October 2018 (see SRPG Newsletter No 19, pp 22-3 for details). This will allow us to compare our observations with those made in 2018 when we saw a total of 158 species in flower.

Leader: Simon Leach,
