Phase 1 Survey training

1 June 2011

Gareth Parry came to Myddle to train us in the use of the Phase 1 Habitat Survey system. 

Following an explanatory talk in the Village Hall, we ventured across the road to a small wood, leading to the recreation ground and fields beyond. 

Navelwort (Umbilicus rupestris)Here we spent time practicing our new mapping skills and identifying and recording a variety of habitats. 

While doing this we found our first Shropshire Axiophyte, Navelwort, or Wall Pennywort, which grows in many stone walls in the area.
