Stream Area

The stream area is bounded to the west by impenetrable rhododendron. There is just enough space to walk on the western side of the stream between the water and the rhododendron.  As this side was slightly drier, the survey was done from the western side.

The ground between the stream and the Boggy Footpath was very wet  and dominated  by Pendulous Sedge and Brambles with several large Oak trees.  The commonest plant along the banks was Opposite-leaved Golden Saxifrage.
