New Forest

At Beaulieu Road Station we found a nice boggy area which contained some good plants and a few dragonflies and butterflies.

Keeled skimmer.

Lesser bladderwort Utricularia minor, a rootless, insectiverous plant.The only other place I've seen this is in Pembrokeshire.

Oblong-leaved sundew Drosera intermedia, a better known insectiverous plant.

Marsh St. John's Wort Hypericum elodes, a new species for me.
 
White beak-sedge Rhynchospora alba, a common species in the New Forest but scarce and local elsewhere in England.

 A New Forest wet heath with carpets of Cross-leaved heath Erica tetralix.

Silver-studded blue on bell heather Erica cinerea.


Large skipper.
