Jeni Bell’s Seeking Wild Sights – New Forest Wildflowers

New Forest Wildflowers

The continued adventures Of Jeni , Bill and Millie……..

The New Forest is a huge expanse, spanning approximately 219 square miles and containing a plentiful array of habitats. There’s broad leaf woodland, conifer plantations, heathland, scrub and even salt marsh so there’s a lot to cover and plenty of opportunities for identification challenges. We spent a weekend exploring the heath type areas around Cadmans Pool, a quite open scrubby expanse, along towards Broomy Walk which is bordered by some mixed enclosures with plenty of lush ferns included.

Whilst there were some butterflies and dragonflies present, I chose to focus on flowers for this week’s Summer Identification Challenge.
