North Tyne Hay Meadow Survey

Catsear (Hypochaeris radicata) with yellow rattle seed pods

Back at the end of July Sally was working on a hay meadow survey for Northumberland National Park Authority in the North Tyne area.  There were at least 57 different species recorded in one field and 38 in the first field visited.  The poorer field had been shut up late because of a late lambing due to the bad winter weather in November.

Bistort (Polygonum sp)

Common sorrel (Rumex acetosa)

Ox-eye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare)

Great Burnet (Sanguisorba officinalis)

Betony (Stachys officinalis)

Catsear (Hypochaeris radicata)

Pignut (Conopodium majus) seed head

Campion (Silene sp.) seed head
