The London Natural History Society do a botany day on the patch each summer (22nd June this year). I've never been able to make it. So I tried my own little plant walk around the patch. I couldn't find any Adder's Tongue Fern (the plant that lays claim to the SSSI status on the marsh) but I had a great time up to my head in height with plants and bugs. The best plants being found on the North Marsh parallel to the railway.
