Steve’s Skye Records

Steve Terry has sent me well over 2000 records at 1km square resolution or better from Skye in 2012.  As well as many additional records for introduced plants, Steve has an eye for orchids and their hybrids and also trees – obviously not suffering from the nose-on-ground problem that I have, which allows me to walk under the same tree many times without recording it.

A few highlights:

  • The first localised record for Gentianella campestris (Field Gentian) in NG52
  • The first record since 1988 for Lycopodium clavatum (Stag’s-horn Clubmoss) in NG52
  • The first localised records for Symphytum x uplandicum (Russian Comfrey) in NG52 and NG62

Symphytum x uplandicum is perhaps more common than earlier records suggest – or else it is spreading:

Black dots are tetrad records from 2000 on
