We were excited to find Apera interrupta growing alongside a sandy track in our survey area on the Shadwell Estate. A ‘new’ plant for several of our group.

We were exploring Hevingham Park and noticed about 20 large fern plants in an open area of the woodland .   Last year's fronds were dying off and from the center of the crown, the new fronds were unfurling.
