More on the Field Meeting

Other interesting finds included Scrophularia auriculata (Water Figwort) and Potentilla reptans (Creeping Cinquefoil), both common plants in other parts of the British Isles, but rare here.

A very hairy willow looking like Salix lapponum (Downy Willow) in a position that was beyond the reach of the party that found it needs further investigation.  A photo is promised but I suspect that I may need to return with a rope…. This would be a real turn-up for the book.

A possible Poa palustris (Swamp Meadow-grass) is going away for confirmation.  This would be only the second site on Skye and the third in the vice-county.

I am not sure what this is growing in a burn – a freshwater sponge?

Freshwater Sponge?
