Sarah on Soay

Sarah and Fred had a foreshortened stay on Soay, but Sarah managed to re-find  an old record for Cladium mariscus (Great Fen-sedge) at Lochan na Teanga Riabhaich:

Cladium on Soay

Soay Cladium Leaf

Cladium is well known from Loch Doire an Lochain on Soay but  Lochan na Teanga Riabhaich is less accessible and they had to run the gauntlet of midges and clegs all the way.

She also found Pinguicula lusitanica (Pale Butterwort) which had not been recorded on Soay since before 2000 and Drosera x obovata (Drosera rotundifolia x anglica), a first for Soay.
