Skye Botany Group

Today the Skye Botany Group walked SW from Glen Brittle to Loch Cròcan and beyond.  I have yet to enter the records into the database, but highlights include:

  1. the first record for Pseudorchis albida (Small-white Orchid) in the 10km square NG31,
  2. lots of flowering Carex lasiocarpa (Slender Sedge) in Loch Cròcan
  3. Vicia sylvatica (Wood Vetch) on the cliffs
  4. Carlina vulgaris (Carline Thistle) in both tetrads recorded

I didn’t do well at taking photos but here are a few:
