Thanks for bringing in a section of turf the other day, it made for an interesting rummage! You managed to find a very nice community that i would say is indicative of a healthy woodland/soil quality particularly with the large coverage of Dicranum and Polytrichastrum (as per id)

Just to note you may want to add a revision for the 'Bank Haircap' as Polytrichastrum formosum as the most recent name, some people get picky about such things...
