Tetrad Bashing

As well as the seashore I was able to visit the small amount of land in tetrad NG25C, part of Lampay.  I recorded 30 species including lots of Ligusticum scoticum (Scot’s Lovage) in this previously unrecorded tetrad.  I also toured Lovaig Bay which had some quite rich cliffs though I failed to re-find old records of Saxifraga hypnoides (Mossy Saxifrage) or Draba incana (Hoary Whitlowgrass).

Steve Terry has been of another of the white squares on my tetrad map, the one in Sleat, and found over 50 species including Drosera anglica (Great Sundew),  Hymenophyllum wilsonii (Wilson’s Filmy-fern) and Nitella opaca (Dark Stonewort).
