Balachuirn area, Raasay

As well as the first vice-county record for Mentha requienii (Corsican Mint) , today’s excursion refreshed old records for the following that had not been recorded in NG54 on Raasay since before 2000: Ceratocapnos claviculata (Climbing Corydalis), Elymus caninus (Bearded Couch) and Potamogeton perfoliatus (Perfoliate Pondweed). I also added 10 records at the 1 km square level, which is how Raasay has been recorded, of which Triglochin maritima (Sea Arrowgrass) was the most interesting, being only the seventh 1 km square where this has been recorded.

There was Nettle Pouch Gall caused by the mite Dasineura urticae:

and various other things to go to HBRG such as Heather Flies (Bibio pomonae).
