Monday 16th February

The Red-necked Grebe was reported again offshore. 

Wildlife News: Two nationally scarce liverworts can be found on the bare ground under two Bird Cherry trees next the toilet block just to the west of the tunnel.  Micheli's Balloonwort (Sphaerocarpos michelii) and Blue Crystalwort (Riccia crystalina) were both first found last year and are found nowhere else in Devon. Although outside the recording area their presence is highlighted here in the hope they will not be destroyed cf the Pennyroyal site on the Warren.
