Gall Record

I don't have many records for U cardui from the southern part of Gloucestershire - could you let me have a grid reference please.

Map reference

ST669755 is the correct six-fig OS reference. It was in the rough grass near the south-west corner of the pond.

It's just a step or two from the location of the Southern Marsh Orchids that were my first iSpot Observation.

I've never seen another one, though I wander through the area regularly.

BRERC data set?

Would I be right in thinking that the GNS gall records for this area will be fed into the BRERC data set? If not I could submit a single record through their web interface.
