This is the first of several wild flower walks organised by Ian Bennallick to up-date records in our area. And we will record anything that we are confident about, not just plants. Please do not bring dogs because of ground nesting birds and farm livestock.

The second wildflower walk in our area organised by Ian to up-date local records in preparation for a new county flora. And we always record other species seen, not just plants. All are welcome but no dogs please because there will still be ground nesting birds as well as farm livestock.

Another botanical walk but this time just south-east of Launceston in the Stourscombe area and then west to Treniffle. We will be walking mainly along lanes and bridle ways so concentrating on hedgerows and verges which might not sound all that interesting but it is surprising what can be discovered. usually un-noticed when we whizz past in our cars.

Might be good Yellow-hammer country as well (we record other things, not just plants). Plants will be different on this kind of land, quite different to our acid granite moorland.

North Hill parish has two main villages and Coads Green is one of them which is on the B3257. Ian plans to cover two 1k squares, one to the south of the village but including the village itself and then down the lanes and west to the next square which includes Penhole, Landreyne and Trewithey. All very old (medieval) farming settlements connected by foot paths so the hedges should be good.

Best to say no dogs please because of farm livestock and generally dry under-foot but there is a stream running down between two of the farms so there will be some wet patches.

This is the last walk this year around the North Hill/Launceston area but there are others  in August around Stoke Climsland, Davidstow, Tokenbury Corner near Pensilva and Kit Hill which are close by. Also a visit is planned to Marsland Mouth at the end of the month. I will put some of the details on this web-site nearer the time.
