    I know that these are the commonest CPs going and everyone has seen them before, but this is the first time I have looked closely at these since growing CPs, and I recon I have learnt a lot. I was here for the geology, not the plants and only encountered D. rotundifolia and P. vulgaris but their occurrences interested me. There were almost none of either in bogs along streams or around larger ponds- I think these had too much sheep dung input and so too high in nutrients as they were filled with other bog plants. Most were in small bogs in depressions surrounded by rocks with very little stream input. The Drosera were almost all growing on Sphagnum or rarely other mosses I saw none on pare peat. It seems there were more in the lower, wetter parts but bigger plants were slightly higher and drier. I saw no Pings growing on Sphagnum and most were on bare peat, the exceptions were on a quarry wall where some were growing on non-Sphagnum mosses or onto almost bare rock.

    Beautiful photos!!! Well done!!! Even they are very common, I can look at p. vulgaris an drosera rotundifolia for hours, and I have a lot of fan growing them: they are perfect!!!!
