Eyre, Raasay

I made a quick visit to Eyre between the showers today to look closely at the Veronica beccabunga (Brooklime) as yesterday at Tormore I found some young plants which I thought were this. A specimen brought home also keyed out as this in The Vegetative Key to the British Flora.  However, I wanted to compare the specimen with a known population and so took it to Eyre. Some plants were at the same stage as the ones at Tormore, but some were in full flower. Anyway,it is definitely the correct identification. There was also some nettle rust (Puccinia urticata), I think the first Raasay record.
