Neist Point

Chris Mitchell led a SWT walk at Neist Point, connecting geology and biology.

Stallion Head, Neist Point

There were many nesting seabirds – fulmars, kittiwakes, auks and gulls – the expected Skye mix.  Two herring gulls were bust eating Lion’s-mane jellyfish.  The swimmers amongst us encouraged them to eat more.

Chris was able to show me the location of the Anagallis tenella (Bog Pimpernel) that he first recorded there in 1983.
