Yellow Horned-poppy (Glaucium flavum) and Sea Mayweed (Tripleurospermum maritum) in Co Wexford. The former is classed as 'Near Threatened' due to loss of habitat.

Far, far away but unmistakeable. Their unique sound, acrobatic tumbling through the sky, their red bills, red legs .. amazing Choughs. Good to know they are still around. We saw four of them today on the Beara peninsula.

Great to see it back there. Watch out for it near Newcastle ... also from the train.

One of the sticky leaves of Round-leaved Sundew or Drosera rotundifolia digesting some insects that are trapped forever on its gluey little spikes.

Thanks for that and reminding me its time for one man to mow his meadow!

I reckon this is a male Common Darter, seen at Glanmore Lake on the beautiful Beara peninsula yesterday. If I'm wrong, please let me know.

One of my favourites and I was surprised to see it this late in the year. As far as I could see, just one remained in flower. Blue-eyed Grass or Sisyrinchium bermudiana, beside Lake Inchaquin on the Beara peninsula.

Sorry to hear that but the wild is another place. That was a beautiful programme and we learned so much from it.

I first saw this plant, years ago, down Lamb's Head in Derrynane, Co Kerry. I think it may just be Chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile). Lovely scent, small flowers, feathery foliage. If I'm wrong, please tell me.

One of the species we record annually for the Rare Plant Register through the National Biodiversity Data Centre. It is Lesser Centaury/Centaurium pulchellum. My fingertip is included in the image to give scale. The count was better this year than last - must be my new specs!

The stunning blue flower of Chicory/Cichorium intybus, plus some unidentified insects, flowering in a roadside bank in Co Wexford. Thank you, Vera Roche Murphy, for drawing my attention to it.

A real marathon of a workshop - so much to learn. Many thanks to Paul and the National Biodiversity Data Centre for another great learning day.

At an NBDC workshop yesterday, Paul Green showed specimens & details of dozens of members of the Rose family. Among those were (L)Fragrant Agrimony & (R)Agrimony. Small differences separate them, the simplest being the grooves on the fruiting cups.
