I doubt we can identify them

I doubt we can identify them from pictures alone and I certainly cannot - get me organised next March/April and I will come and see what we can find at Howardian. Hope the Cardiff list and pictures will be up on our museum website soon

Thanks Tim...

It will be good to arrange to meet up and have a look at the reserve next year. George Hutchinson kindly passed the Museum's list of herbarium items from Howardian LNR on to me.
