Seeing the Changes 1347














Lots happening at the Swansea University Bay Campus. Flowering by Biting stonecrop (Sedum acre); Pyramidal orchid (Anacamptis pyramidalis); Purple viper's blugloss (Echium plantagineum); Common poppy (Papaver rhoeas); Marsh ragwort (Senecia aquaticus); Stone bramble (Rubus saxatilis); Sea bindweed (Calystegia soldanella); Sea spurge (Euphorbia paralias) and Rest harrow (Ononis repens). Invertebrate life included Black garden ants (Lasius niger) with 'eggs'; Common blue butterfly (Polyommatus Icarus) and masses of millipedes (probably Schizophyllum sabulosum). Skylarks (Alauda arvensis) sang overhead.
