More Spring Snowflakes

It turns out that Bill & Deirdre have seen Leucojum vernum (Spring Snowflake) along the burn at Talisker Bay for some years where it has no doubt escaped from Talisker House. So the record from Sleat earlier this year will lose its precedence as a first vice-county record as soon as I can tie down a tetrad and date for Talisker.

The swallows are back on Raasay. The first Skye sightings were back on 9th April.

Tomorrow, weather permitting, a trip to Braes and next week I am on North Uist with other early season botanists.
