Birdsfoot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus)

Eggs and Toenails

Currently one of the most common flowering plans in Edford meadows is Bird’s-foot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus).

Bird’s-foot Trefoil is also know as  ‘eggs and bacon’ because of the yellow and orange hue of the pea-like flowers, or ‘Granny’s Toenails’ due to the claw-like seed pods.
