Trip Report November 6 2012

TTHE LICHEN TRAIL - DURDHAM DOWN


6 Members attended  this meeting and gained an insight into the fascinating world of Lichens.
We followed the 1/2 mile Lichen Trail as set out on the leaflet produced for the trail.
Moving from tree to tree we were able to examine the various Lichens we encountered.
We managed to indentify a total of 15 different species of Lichens in total.Many thanks to Alan Rayner for his expert help with the id's.
