Refreshing Raasay Records

As I have been concentrating on the rest of the vice-county, Raasay has been a bit neglected so today I set out to refresh a few records that have not been recorded in the 10 km square NG53 on Raasay since before 2000.  There aren’t that many and a few trips should sort most of them (apart from some very old records that I have never re-found). Today involved  a trip to the area west of Eyre at the southern tip of the island and I managed to re-find Centunculus minimus (Chaffweed), Eleocharis palustris (Common Spike-rush)(!) and  Eriphorum latifolium (Broad-leaved Cottongrass). Some sights from the day:
