We found one plant in flower on some hard core, then proceeded to find about 20 plants in dry grassland nearby. Moving onto another meadow on the other side of the runway, we were delighted to find it in abundance. Here it was growing amongst Bird's-foot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus) and Hoary Ragwort (Senecio erucifolius) extending into some damp hollows.
