Pedunculate Club-rush - yet another new plant for Norfolk, 6 October 2021

When a new plant for the county gets found at your local patch it's really something so the discovery of the snappily-named Pedunculate Club-rush (Bolboschoenus laticarpus) at Dickleburgh Moor had me down there as soon as I got details!

It was a quick and easy find, there being 2 large patches of it growing beside a dyke. Alex Prendergast discovered it a few weeks back and has confirmed it's identity. It would seem that this is also the first record of this rare plant in East Anglia with it having a small stronghold on the Somerset Levels. 

Also on the site were 4 Green Sandpipers, 2 Ruff and a flock of c50 Linnets.
