Eriophorum angustifolium

Totally unexpected this one and a new record for this plant in the area. Normally you would expect to find this on the moors growing out of a peaty bog but there is a big patch of it in a wet flush on the side of the cliff between Marske and Saltburn. Walk along the beach when it is in flower and it is obvious…otherwise it just blends into the nearby grasses.
