So when I noticed gorse die-back in late May 2021 and realised how extensive it was across this area I reported my findings to Natural England. I wanted to know if the problem was widespread and if the cause were known
Gorse dieback in the UK, 2021 (sundewecology.co.uk)
We are invited to submit sightings of gorse-die back, with location, grid reference and images. I have done so, and share this so others who come across gorse die-back may do the same. Friends already report to me of locations in Cumbria where it is apparent.
The final image of the sequence shows gorse die-back, 4 May 2021. Flowers show on the last green foliage but where the spiny gorse is brown and lifeless no flowers had developed.
Read the article in the link. Let's hope gorse recovers next spring.
Once again, my thanks to Natural England for pursuing my query.
