As I write I am watching a pod of about 10-12 dolphins disporting themselves in the bay. They only come in a few times a year and always give so much pleasure.

Nick has found Ophioglossum azoricum (Small Adder’s-tongue) on a coastal cliff near Earlish – a long way from previously known records and opening up the possibility of other sites around the Skye coast.

Terry has found Botrychium lunaria (Moonwort) in NG52, twenty-six years after the only other record for that 10km square and at the opposite end of it.

John has Pseudorchis albida (Small-white Orchid) flowering in his garden in Waternish again this year.

Steve has found more Erica tetralix f. fissens a little way from where he found it last year:

That putative Ancylis uncella micro-moth has been viewed by experts and Mark Young’s verdict is “This specimen is very worn and I am afraid that I can’t confirm that it is certainly A. uncella.  It could still be a very worn A. unguicella instead.” So, no new VC record.
