Twitching urban weeds 'up Nodge', 24 May 2021

A quick and dirty dash into Norwich before the rush hour this morning for some urban botany in the fine city.

Two targets, Keeled-fruited Cornsalad (confirmed by examination of the seed capsules) and the impressive Woad were both found very easily thanks to some great directions from Louis Parkerson. The latter was a very impressive sight. While walking through the Catherdral Close I was photographing Common Whitebeam when a commotion above me revealed the 2 Peregrines mobbing a passing Red Kite. It was like a scene from medieval England! The walls of the Cathedral School were awash with Mexican Fleabane, Ivy-leaved Toadflax, Wallflowers and Pellitory of the Wall.
