What a load of rubbish!

My last records from 2015 were from the front plate of this rubbish bin in Killay, Swansea (you can imagine the odd looks I had as I examined and photographed the bin). For ref the following were noted on the front of the bin; Bryum capillare, Frullania dilatata, Orthotrichum affine, O. diaphanum and Rhynchostegium confertum. The year was in fact far from being a load of rubbish and good progress was made with recording. Very best wishes for 2016 and a mossy New Year to all.

  1. Interesting about the epiphytes. I've seen Frullania on bins in Cardiff but only when these are directly beneath street trees.

  2. The only other bin flora I recall recording was a rubberised bin lid in Ilston Church grounds, which had Scistidium crassipilum amongst others.
