Another Blank Tetrad Knocked Off

Even though I am away from home at present, the project continues! John and Jean have had  a go at a 1 km square south of Bracadale which forms part of a tetrad with no previous records  and achieved a creditable 121 records – pretty good for a limited area in mid-September.

Meanwhile Sarah has confirmed  the Utricularia from the last Skye Botany Group meeting as U. stygia (Nordic Bladderwort) by microscopic examination of the quadrifid hairs in the bladders:
