Come up north to Milton Keynes and experience Manor Farm, Willen or Linford nature reserve (members only but I believe you can visit for a day), all three can be good in spring.

Plant ID

Hi can anyone ID this plant species? I've had a search and closest I could come was an Algea possibly blue green? but growing by a wall (of a roman ruin) not really near water.

Thanks in advance.
