River Ose, Dun Arkaig Broch & Broisgillmore Burn

After a visit in Ose to see the site of some Veronica filiformis (Slender Speedwell) reported earlier, I went east and recorded (rapidly) in four tetrads that had only one earlier record between them.

The meandering River Ose

The river was full of Sparganium erectum (Branchd Bur-reed) and S. angustifolium (Floating Bur-reed).  The river also had great patches of Callitriche brutia ssp. hamulata (Intermediate Water-starwort):

Dun Arkaig Broch had nettles on the top with Puccinia uricata (Nettle Rust)

The day yielded 534 plant records including a new Schedonorus arundinaceus (Tall Fescue) record by the roadside en route.
