A Raasay Afternoon

Conscious that I am spending all my botanical recording time on Skye, when the rain (Rain!) stopped I went for a walk from Glam to Beinn a’ Chappuil on Raasay.  I added 19 (maybe 20) 1km square records including records for Rubus saxatilis (Stone Bramble), Carex x fulva (Empty Sedge) and Chara virgata (Delicate Stonewort).  The Salix herbacea (Dwarf Willow) on  Beinn a’ Chappuil was doing well and there was a large population of Eriophorum latifolium (Broad-leaved Cottongrass):

Eriophorum latifolium

The “19 maybe 20” above refers to an Alchemilla. I shall take a bit to the Alchemilla workshop in Ullapool next weekend for expert opinion.
