I use Succisa pratensis (Devil’s-bit Scabious) as a marker to show which tetrads have been recorded:

The black dots show tetrads (2 x 2 km squares) with records from 2000 to 2009; red dots are earlier records that can be localised to this scale. 

The pinkish squares are 10 km squares where the plant has been recorded post-1999 – all 10km squares in the vice-county. (For less common species, 10km squares with earlier records but no post-1999 record are shown in a different colour.)

This shows that the Small Isles and the islands to the east of Skye have been pretty well covered in recent times. 

What is also apparent is just how much there remains to cover on Skye.  It would be nice to have visited most tetrads by the end of 2019 but we shall see…..
