Author's notes

Five scattered plants - all more than 1 metre apart. Similar plants in similar location to previous sighting 387790 (and 3387016 from last year). Only one plant with flowers open - all plants about 30 cm tall with nodding flowering stems. As previously noted the location near Smokers Gap maybe matches up with G. sesamoides more than G. surcula - despite the altitude here being just over 1200m? Glen
