This summer is turning out to be a wash out, however we still pushed ourselves to get out there ala 'Chris Packham'. We walked along the coast toward Lymington past the nature reserve where we did manage to see a few interesting birds braving the water. After my experience with teasel seedlings I can well understand how the teasel here has colonised itself, and it's great. This is where teasel should be growing, if anyone wants a seedling, I think I'm good for the next ten years at least! ugh..
