East Wickham Open Space – recent plant survey results

East Wickham Open Space, north of Welling town centre, is a large site with extensive wildflower meadows, which we presume were sown at some time in the past. A good array of species persists, and the site is well worth a visit for this reason alone. The grassland supports good populations of invertebrates as a result. Here are the results of East Wickham Conservation Volunteer’s latest plant survey:

    Cycling through last weekend (for the first time), we stopped briefly and I saw some pretty pink oxalis I wasn’t familiar with so went to inspect it closely. It was pink sorrel, Oxalis articulata, under trees close to the edge of the park, near back gardens (garden escape?). So that can be added to the list 🙂
