Lordship plants - Woody Nightshade in 'Bat-corner'

Observed: 8th June 2012 By: jeremyrjeremyr’s reputation in Plantsjeremyr’s reputation in Plantsjeremyr’s reputation in Plantsjeremyr’s reputation in Plants

This plant is now flowering beside the sedges at the north-west 'Bat Corner' of the pond. The bench here is the the hot-spot for bats in the park, having a warm current of air flowing past. Common and Nathusius' Pipistrelles like to fly up and down this edge of the pond, so look out out for them on tomorrow night's Batwalk, with Daubenton's bat too, hopefully skimming over the water.
