This is area in the south part of the New Forest includes a mire on the Forest’s calcareous Headon Beds, with records for species such as Sphagnum contortum, S. teres and S. molle. It also has the only Hampshire record for Cephalozia pleniceps, made in 1956 by Jean Paton. There are few recent records from this part of the Forest, so it could be interesting.
Meet at the car park at Wilverley Plain, on minor road west of Brockenhurst, at SU 256012.
