I am now back home on Crete after a long and very enjoyable time in the UK. I am straight back into work. I am hoping to complete my watercolour study of Cretan dittany shortly and am working with Rosemary and a German University student Carl Barnick on species lists for various endangered habitats in the Aghios Nikolaos area. Tomorrow we are continuing our survey of the wetlands at Almyros which we started in November. It will be interesting to see what new plants are starting to appear as the winter has been very cold and wet and everything seems to be late this year.
