Skye Plants

Bill & Deirdre have found Neottia ovata (Common Twayblade) in large numbers at Fiskavaig where it had first been recorded in 1958, again in 1989, but not since.

Roger & Pat have confirmed an old site for Orchis mascula (Early-purple Orchid) near Ord and also found other orchids in that area.

John has sent this image of a fern that remains undetermined at present:

Steve has sent over 400 June records including Allium schoenoprasum (Chives) from Lusa (new to the vice-county) and Centaurium erythraea (Common Centaury) from Torrin, an area where it has not been recorded since 1971.
