Lesser sea Spurrey

Lesser sea Spurrey (Spergularia marina)

vulnerable juvenile Robin

As the Latin name suggests Lesser sea Spurrey is a coastal plant but it can occur inland where salt is spread on the roads. There are large clumps growing on the curly kews bank in Morpeth. The Robin hopped out while I was taking some photographs; totally fearless of me, the dog, passers by and nearby road traffic.
