Dickleburgh Moor and some garden plants, 26 July 2021

An afternoon visit to a much quieter Dickleburgh Moor now the dowitcher has departed!

There was still plenty of interest however with 1 Wood Sandpiper, 3 Green Sandpipers, 41 Lapwing, Kingfisher, c6 juv Yellow Wagtails and a Norfolk Hawker patrolling he ditch along the eastern bund. It was a particular plant I'd come for however and I found the very attractive Golden Dock in big numbers in the NE corner of the reserve plus other goodies such as Gypsywort, Water Chickweed, Purple Loosestrife, Fine-leaved Water Dropwort, Marsh Woundwort, Reed Canary Grass and Red Goosefoot. 

Back at home surveying Tattlepot acres I found that our Stone Parsley has come up again and on the side patio were both Petty Spurge, Hedge Woundwort and the invasive alien sedge Cyperus eragrostis. The garden also has naturalised Cyprus Spurge and Lemon Balm which have not been planted.
