MG5 Grassland

I came across some MG5 grassland today, one of the mesotrophic grasslands in the NVC classification. It's quite a nice community with some nice looking species. Common species in this grassland which are not shown here because they're not in flower at the moment include cowslip Primula veris, ribwort plantain Plantago lanceolata and Common knapweed Centaurea nigra.

Common bird's-foot trefoil Lotus corniculatus.

Oxeye daisy Leucanthemum vulgare.

Red campion Silene dioica.

Ragged robin Lychnis flos-cuculi.

Crested dog's-tail Cynosurus cristatus.

Red fescue Festuca rubra.

Nearby in a glade there were lots of this micro moth Nemophora degeerella.
