Recent tree planting on Etna"

Etna Park, Buckley


In "Wildlife Matters" Issue 31, Spring 2003, it states that the Flintshire Countryside Service planted a good 1/4 km stretch of new native hedge.


In "Wildlife Matters" Issue 35, Summer 2004, the editor, Pip Perry, notes:




It was with great excitement that I found several patches of this dainty member of the pea family. It resembles a grass and grows amongst the tall grasses where it is very hard to detect unless in flower. In Goronwy Wynne's "Flora of Flintshire", there is one recording in Connah's Quay in the 1970s, and previously at Saltney in 1913. It has more recently been found growing on Etna Country Park and at the Brookhill site - both in Buckley.


Phil Hodges, in the same issue, states: "Wild flowers to look out for on Etna include yellow rattle, kidney vetch, and grass vetchling."
