Worcestershire Record No. 25 November 2008 p. 42


Three sites were visited as follows:

Hipton Hill Orchards, near Lenchwick, Evesham, central grid reference SP029484 on Saturday 7th June 2008 by kind invitation of the owners Vale Landscape Heritage Trust.

Pound Green Common & Hurst Coppice, near Bewdley, central grid reference SO754789 on Saturday 5th July 2008 by arrangement with Godfrey Jones.

Hartlebury Common, Stourport on Severn, central grid reference SO824709 on Saturday 2nd August 2008 by invitation from Joy Rooney of the Hartlebury Common Local Group and permission from owners Worcestershire County Council.

For Hipton Hill 26 people booked and 21 attended
For Pound Green 25 booked and 20 attended
For Hartlebury Common 33 booked and 25 attended.

Of those attending there was a good range of expertise in many different groups of flora and fauna. It is impossible for all experts to be there at the same time. The following table contain all the data sent to the Worcestershire Biological Records Centre by October 2008. Doubtless other records will arrive later. For each site most records appear in the first table. Vascular plants are listed separately. In this instance, because of computer problems, Mick Blythe’s records of Diptera are in a separate table. The task of dealing with all these records rarely runs smoothly! Many thanks to those who have sent them in: if you have any outstanding please send them to the WBRC. Apologies if any of your records are missing – please contact Simon Wood at the WBRC if you have any particular questions about the records simon@wbrc.org.uk These field recording days provide a valuable snapshot for one day.

The bulk of the records have been extracted from the WBRC database and sorted by John Partridge.
