Raasay SSSI Part 2

I have started Site Condition Monitoring of the Raasay SSSI vascular plants in earnest with populations of Arabidopsis petraea (Northern Rock-cress), Orobanche alba (Thyme Broomrape), Potamogeton filiformis (Slender-leaved Pondweed) and Sorbus rupicola (Rock Whitebeam) monitored last Friday.

I also found a new site (in fact a new tetrad) for Polystichum lonchitis (Holly-fern)

Polystichum lonchitis

and some proliferative deergrass at an early stage. I haven’t decided yet whether it is Trichophorum germanicum (Deergrass) or the hybrid between that and Trichophorum cespitosum (Northern Deergrass), Trichophorum x foersteri.
