Charmouth 1st August

I spent the morning near Charmouth looking for some local specialities namely Slender Centaury, Cliff Tiger Beetle and Sea Heath. To my delight I managed to find all three and some additions too. Being a beginner I found the Centaury group a little tricky to get the hand of but pointers that helped included looking for the presence of a basal rosette, whether the branches along the whole stem or just the top half and the leaf shape.
