Hart's tongue fern

The greenest green plant in the woods at this season.  This Hart's Tongue Fern (Asplenium sclopendrium) has undivided fronds.  

It favours alkaline conditions, often growing on limestone rocks or walls, and so gives an indication of the type of soil.  

There is quite a lot of it in the Valley Woodland at Filnore near post 9.
