Today, we took part in the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland (BSBI) New Year Plant Hunt.
We had to spend up to three hours looking for flowering wild plants. When we saw any we had to take a photograph and submit it using a form on the New Year Plant Hunt website.
The New Year Plant Hunt helps the BSBI find out how changes in autumn and winter weather are affecting wildflowers.
We went for a walk around New Hall Valley and the area nearby to do our plant hunt. These are the flowers we found:
Two grasses that we couldn’t identify
