With that in mind I headed up to Potton Wood on Sunday afternoon to see what I could find, and with a vague intention of looking for broad-leaved helleborines for the Bedfordshire orchid survey. Before I'd even got into the woods I'd got my first new species in the form of the extremely common black knapweed, which was growing in abundance along the verges.
