Kilt Rock

Before Wednesday’s talk I went to Kilt Rock, principally to see whether I could locate an old record for Saxifraga oppositifolia (Purple Saxifrage) as it should be in flower, but failed.  I didn’t get down below the cliffs to look back up, so that may be why I missed it.  With limited time and a strong wind I kept to the top of the coastal cliffs and the foot of some more a little inland towards the north of the target tetrad. I recorded  75 species, many of which are already quite determinable from new growth:

Angelica sylvestris

cooff

Cochlearia officinalis

This is Kilt Rock:

This a rock near the cliff edge that appears to have been left behind during some geological process:

and these are buzzard pellets (thanks Roger for confirmation) from below a small tree on the cliff edge:
