Eigg Part 3

I added over 1000 records in my two days on Eigg including seven taxa not seen in NM48 since before 2000 and three in NM49. One of the latter was the locally scarce Epilobium parviflorum (Hoary Willowherb):

It was also interesting to see lots of Sedum acre (Biting Stonecrop), both at sea level and on the top of the cliffs above Cleadale, as it is not common on Skye.

This is either Bombus bohemicus or B. sylvestris, but the females are very difficult to separate:
