Clay Hill Nr Burley, New Forest

A summer (partial) reunion of part-time FdSc W&CM'ers saw us in the New Forest, just North of Burley for some tree and plant ID action and mutual support with tackling Francis Rose's The Wild Flower Key. Success using this key was limited and other authors were found to be more accessible on the day, Karl's field skills helped to secure many of the flower and tree species without resort to guides.
