We were clubbing it

Today I spent a very enjoyable time with Mike Kilner. Although Mike's speciality is spiders he was keen to do some clubmoss twitching. First up was stags horn clubmoss and it was just as well Mike was with me. Whilst I was thrashed about aimlessly in leggy heather Mike dropped on the clubmoss relatively easily. And what a sight it was hundreds of fruiting bodies proud and erect.

Next up was fir clubmoss this required a walk to the top of Canada tips to find a specimen growing in the base of a disused reservoir. Once again Mike was able to locate the clubmoss after my poor attempt at findng it.
