Tottington Woodlanders

We are a registered charity which manages an area of ancient woodland next to the village of Small Dole near Henfield in West Sussex.

Botanical Survey

Town-hall Clock Adoxa moschatellina

On Parajumpers Long Bear Outlet the first of May 2013 we had the first session of the annual botanical survey in the wood.  As usual we were supervised by a member of the Worthing Botanical Recording Society; without whose help the survey would not be possible.

Lesser Celandine (Ranunculus ficaria)

Almost as abundant as the Anemones in parts of the wood are the Lesser Celandines.  They tend to clump in selected areas.  Many people mistake them for the meadow buttercup when they see them in the wood, but they are very different on closer inspection.  We did not see any field buttercups on our walk today, but we did find some Goldilocks Buttercup (Ranunculus auricomus), which is always a pleasing find.
