War – Huh – What is it good for?


Water crowfoot in bomb crater.

The nearby hayfield is also full of yellow rattle. This semi-parasitc plant suppresses the grass allowing for a greater diversity of wildflowers – it also looks great. These photographs were taken last week when the sun was still shining!

  1. Sorry Mr Mills – this photo was taken at Farlington Marshes! This particular pond can be seen from the eastern sea wall. A number of the ponds at Farlington are as a result of bombing during the second world war. In fact the marshes played a fascinating and important role during this conflict. As you may well know decoy fires were lit out on the marshes to lure bombing raids away from Portsmouth. Other similar ponds can be seen more closely in the area know as the Bushes near the info hut.
