Last week you may have noticed small groups of people in the dunes talking in Latin. We had a group from the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland who came from as far a field as London and Perth (as well as Belford and Alnwick!). They were there surveying the botanical interest of the NNR as well as other areas around the coast. It was great having them on the reserve and it will be really interesting to see what comes out of the many recording cards and notes they completed. We may even have some interesting finds to put on the blog. Hopefully the information will feed into our records. Knowing what botanical records we have on the reserve and where they are allows us to shape future management. Here's the group below - hope they enjoyed their time, I enjoyed learning some more latin!
