June is usually the month when many of our wild flowers are at their peak of flowering – notably members of the Fabaceae - or the Leguminosae as most of us used to call them. Vetches straggle their way through the hedgerows, medicks stud our lawns, clovers and wild peas brighten the coastline. Some are tiny yet exquisite. Others are bold and flamboyant. All are fascinating to study in detail!

Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service (SBIS) and Suffolk Naturalists Society (SNS) have kindly offered a bursary to support individuals who wish to attend this course to help provide people with the skills and experience to identify and record Suffolk wildlife. Further info can be found HERE.

Ros Bennett is a freelance botanist with a wealth of experience at many FSC Centres. She has a practical and participative approach and is enthusiastic about all aspects of botany.
