GNS Field Meeting – Guscar Rocks (10 May 2006, contributed by Juliet Bailey)

One of the highlights of this meeting were 4 Painted Lady butterflies, presumably newly arrived migrants, on the banks of the Severn near Guscar Rocks. Among the birds seen were: Whimbrel, Lapwing, Cormorant, Dunlin, and Shelduck. There were some spectacular drifts of English Scurvy Grass (Cochlearia anglica) in the saltmarsh channels. The meeting was cut short by a thunder storm.
