A windy day yesterday but a useful one. I found nesting goosanders and a dipper plus a hedgehog on the road, sadly the aftermath of an RTA.
The River Snizort was full of Schoenoplectus lacustris (Common Club-rush) and Sparganium erectum (Branched Bur-reed), the latter in particular not having very many Skye records, though it may have been under-recorded.
A riverside sedge needs further study but may be interesting too.
A cluster of about fifty plants of Neottia ovata (Twayblade) was coming into flower:
and the only nettles I saw were infected with Puccinia urticata (Nettle Rust):
Along the roadside where the Forestry has been felling large area of conifers, there were over a dozen specimens of Spergularia rubra (Sand Spurrey), a rare plant locally but this is typical of its habitat.
