Includes a photo of an un-named fern..... looks very familiar, but I'm hopeless with fern names..... one of you folks will know it, I'm sure!

I think the fern is similar to Cryptogramma crispa.

Yes, I'm also hopeless with ferns.  Here's a picture of it, in rocky habitat. 
Thanks for your suggestion, Ulla

Yep it looks like Cryptogramma crispa to me too.  Did you manage to get any spores Diane?

Hurrah!  It's back!
Diane has not posted diary for some time ( hardly surprising with the busy life she leads) but there is a new report online here : http://www.alpinegardensociety.net/diaries/Midland/+July+/491/
