Ollach & Gedintailor, Braes

I had a few hours in this area today recording in one partial tetrad with no previous records and one with 44 taxa recorded, mostly from Loch Fada, which I did not get to today.

The coast turned out to be lovely and quite rich botanically, though I saw no rarities. Ligusticum scoticum (Scots Lovage) and Prunus spinosa (Blackthorn) were among the more notable species and there was a nice Dactylorhiza fuchsii (Common Spotted-orchid) in wet woodland:

I also saw my first Small Heath of the year:
