We were 15 for the walk today that I was leading, though it was a bit damp. Two days ago I had a recce and found a bit of bog that I had never visited. I added 20 1km square records to the Raasay flora, including some nice things like the pale form of Dactylorhiza incarnata ssp. pulchella (Early Marsh-orchid) and Platanthera bifolia (Lesser Butterfly-orchid).
