Houghton Green Flash, Winwick

Redshank and Yellow wagtail the only birds of note today.

This is common liverwort Marchantia polymorpha. The pale green "umbrellas" are the reproductive structures of the female plant called gametophores.The smaller, darker "umbrellas" are the male plants.

In this photo you can see the gametophores growing out of the female thalli (leaves).

Celery-leaved buttercup.
