26/7/09: Franks Park / more Belvedere botany

I'd not been in Franks Park before. Tree flora looked similar to nearby Lesnes Abbey Woods, including Sessile Oak. Ground flora included Hedge Woundwort, Germander Speedwell, Dogs Mercury and Enchanter's Nightshade.

A party of Long-tailed Tits kept themselves well hidden amongst the leaves.

On the houses side of Parkside Rd., adjacent to the wood, there were 12 Sun Spurge. A Japanese Honeysuckle had got into the mix by the gate opposite Halt Robin Lane, where there was also a lot of White Bryony.

I found one bent and buckled Caper Spurge in fruit on the wood margin between the ends of Ashburton and Gordon Roads.
