The Adder’s-tongue Season is Here

Morag reports Ophioglossum vulgatum (Adder’s-tongue) from near Portree – a site where it has been known for some years but feared lost after bracken spraying.

This species appears to be much rarer on Skye than on Raasay or Eigg – see map – but maybe it is overlooked.  It is always associated with bracken in this part of the world.
