Coastal Plants Identification

Those attending our Coastal Plant walk at Crimdon learned how to identify 11 coastal plants, and discovered how dunes form, and the species found on each type of dune.

We saw Wild Carrot, Bloody Cranesbill, Wild Mignonette and Mugwort on the fixed dunes.

On the semi-fixed and mobile dunes we found Rough Hawkbit, Restharrow and Mouseear Hawkweed.

The embryo dunes had lots of Marram grass, as well as Sea Holly, Sheep’s Fescue and a pretty Common Blue butterfly.
