Pezoulia Nature Reserve
Every Monday, Dr Rosemary John and Julia Jones are visiting the new Pezoulia Nature Reserve to make a comprehensive species list.  This list will be updated each month, as definite identifications are made.  It is hoped that, in due course, we will produce a complete record with scientific notes and images, to enable visitors to the site to understand the plants that they will observe from month to month.
