Worcestershire Record No. 27 November 2009 p. 7


Our meetings are to help beginners learn their mosses and liverworts, rather than high-powered recording sessions. All are on Sundays, and start at 10.30 a.m. Please bring sandwiches.

You may wish to bring with you a copy of the BBS’s Field-guide, files for which are on-line at www.hosting.sleath.co.uk/bbs (or click on the book cover of the Field-guide on the left-hand side of the BBS web-site’s home page at http://britishbryologicalsociety.org.uk/ and follow the links).

You are very welcome to suggest venues for future outdoor meetings; please include grid references and details for parking.

We will explore Coed y Geifr at Rowlestone Court Farm near Ewyas Harold in south-west Herefordshire with Jonathan Sleath, and with the kind permission of Mr Mark Williams. Coed y Geifr is semi-natural woodland, with several deeply incised streams. It is not known bryologically, but promises to be a rewarding locality. Meet at SO376271 in the parking area by the ice-cream shop.

February 14th 2010

Meet at the entrance to Bridgnorth cemetery, Shropshire (SO724935). This large cemetery contains a varied assemblage of habitats, and should provide us with a good list of bryophytes. Later in the day, we may venture on to the sandstone outcrops nearby,
