The River Snizort Again

Well it turned out that there was no more Carex aquatilis (Water Sedge), nor Schoenoplectus lacustris (Common Club-rush), nor Sparganium erectum (Branched Bur-reed) between the higher reaches of the River Snizort and its lower reaches – with one proviso.  The river was in spate so I could not cross it to inspect a patch of sedge on the west bank, but I think it is only Carex rostrata (Bottle Sedge).

However, there were several sites for Carex canescens (White Sedge):

and up by the road near Uigshader there was Mentha x villosa (Apple-mint), a failry frequent escape in these parts:

Beside the river there was my first Golden-ringed Dragonfly (Cordulegaster boltonii) of the year:
