Dutch Rush

Equisetum hyemale (Rough Horsetail or Dutch Rush) is scarce on Skye, but Carl reported a new site in 2004 which I re-found today near Penifiler. There was an extensive patch in willow carr and much more along the burn (Lon a’Ghleannain).  I forgot to take a picture but here is a bit from Rigg in 2009:

Eq hyemale Rigg 4

Erophila glabrecens (Glabrous Whitlowgrass) was flowering well in the middle of Portree.
