New vice-county record

 Last month within Port Talbot Docks I came across a large population of a plant I could not identify and I took specimens and photographs. Richard Pryce provisionally identified it as Tall Mouse-ear-hawkweed Pilosella praealta and this was confirmed yesterday by Mick Crawley, VC Recorder for Berkshire, who knows the species well. This is a new species for Glamorgan which appears to be very well-established in the docks as I found more yesterday over a mile from the original location.
