21st February 2016 – Salisbury Plain, Sidbury Hill

Sidbury Hill is a prominent hill fort near Tidworth that is rich in calcicolous bryophytes. On its slopes and in the dry flinty valleys nearby we should see plenty of Pottiopsis caespitosa, Didymodon acutus and Abietinella abietina. Populations of Weissia sterilis, Pleurochaete squarrosa, Encalypta vulgaris, Lophozia perssonii and Aloina rigida have also been seen recently in the same area.

As this is a military area, we will have to restrict numbers and places will be reserved on a first come, first served basis. To book, please email Sharon at sharon.pilkington1@btinternet.com.

Leader: Sharon Pilkington.
