Great to see that BSBI has just released this year's programme of field meetings. In vc55, the local BSBI group is already discussing car-pooling to attend a few of them.
Meetings marked 'Beginners' or 'Training' are a great way to sharpen or acquire ID skills with a bunch of botanical friends. BSBI's unique mixture of beginner and expert, amateur and professional, means we all enjoy botanising together and sharing what we know.
We had such a great BSBI meeting at Rutland Water last summer - thanks to Maggie Crittenden for taking this photo of us comparing Bidens cernua with B. tripartita.
