|A pause among the heather|
|On the North Berwyn Way|
We left the path when David spotted a patch of bright yellow vegetation which looked promisingly different, and proved to be a dense stand of Narthecium ossifragum, Bog Asphodel, with Cranberry, Vaccinium oxycoccus but there were few other bog plants to be seen. We then paid the price for leaving the path as we had to struggle through rank heather for much of the last part of the journey, so, of course we made that the excuse for a lunch stop. Then off again through more difficult walking conditions - but at last the summit was reached!
|Some of us did reach the summit!|
Records for the day were few, but it was good to find that we added 28 new hectad records in our score of 42 new species for the tetrad.
