Lovely photos Elvis,

Drosera really glow in the sunshine. The cotton grass is a pretty reliable 'flag' for CPs in the UK.

If you are walking through mixed country in Wales, Lake District, New Forest etc, if you see the cotton grass there is probably sphagnum and Drosera. The difference is that you can see the nodding white seed heads from a distance by eye and even further through binoculars.

Your pics cheered up my morning!

Cheers,

Steve

Nice one Elvis

 

I'm a frequent visitor to the New Forest and Dorset bogs.

 

Keep an eye out for the forthcoming book on the Carnivorous Plants of Britain and Ireland (native and non-native cp's), which all going well will be available from late autumn via Redfern. We cover all the 13 native species (plus hybrids, etc), most of which can be found in The New Forest and Dorset, and will be as image rich as possible including shots of the amazing habitats they live in. The only plant I failed to locate and photograph for the book was U. ochroleuca.

 

Cheers

 

Tim

Hi Tim,

That's not in the 'Coming Soon' part of the Redfern site (as far as I can see).

Any ideas about cost etc?

Cheers,

Steve

Hi Steve

 

Sorting out a cover with Stew at the moment and as you say not yet posted on the Redfern site. 

 

Cost, please don't hold me to it, I'm guessing will be around £19.99.

 

Cheers

 

Tim

Is this the bog on the opposite side of the road from the Venus Fly Traps ?

 

If so, I last went there 2 years ago and a car had just had one serious oil leak........and it was flowing straight into bog. Thought it might be bad news for the D. anglica living there, as they were first in the firing line.

 

Going back next month myself, will have to take a look myself.

Nice habitat with a good population of Drosera anglica. And D. rotundifolia. Drosera anglica is very rare in The Netherlands, only one place left here. But Drosera rotundifolia is quiet common here fortunately.

near Burley

We went there and saw some.... But the weather was not very good and did not get nice pictures like yours.

Ours would have been dark and you wouldn't be able to see anything.
