ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS TO PART I AND PART II
The following additions and corrections to Part I consist mainly of transcriptions of manuscript annotations in floras and in notebooks. There are also some additional herbarium records which have come to light and a systematic search of Watsonia and BSBI News has also produced additional records. Additions to Part II are mainly of new records and have also been added on to the website.
The imperative Replace indicates that there is already a very similar record which should be Replaced.

On the spine of East Hill; I estimate the grid reference to be 5551.4838. There are two rabbit exclosures on the spine; the southernmost one, roughly lozenge shaped, was still rabbit-proof and the grassland very rank and species-poor in appearance. The second exclosure, extending northwards along the spine, was not entirely rabbit-proof and contained some shorter and more open grassland; the Dianthus was in the southern part of this second exclosure. I counted 4 flowering stems but there were no doubt some non-flowering ones I overlooked. I decided not to crawl or walk around the area to avoid trampling the plant, NP Millar, 22.6.2001.

Eriophorum angustifolium Roth.
Last record: PJ Bourne, 1962
In two patches: Patch 1, 4'6" x 5', contained 13 flowering plants within a depression surrounded by a triangular bank. The plants were along the inner edge of the bank, associated with Juncus inflexus & Juncus articulatus. Nearby there were Cirsium arvense, Daucus carrota, Epilobium sp., Orchis fuchsii (2 plants), Salix alba, Sonchus arvensis, S. oleraceus, Trifolium campestre, Taraxacum officinale. Patch 2 lies about 40 feet below Patch 1 approx 5 towards the water filled bottom of the main pit. It was very dried up, with no flowering plants. It extended for about 5' x 35', and the associated plants were mainly as Patch 1, plus Salix repens, Blackstonia perfoliata, Ophrys apifera (1 plant). The 11' bank of Patch 1 being formed by chalk pushed off the roadway which may have encroached on the former Eriophorum area. To find Patch 2, walk approx 160 yards down path which starts near a five-cylinder building, not far from the three main chimneys (to the right of them, as you enter the works). The patch is on the right side of the path, near where it joins the lower chalk roadway. Eastwood Cement Works, Barrington. Sketch plan. PJ Bourne, 3.7.1962.
