Allt Osglan

It was never going to match up with the previous day, but the Osglan Burn is pleasantly wooded and I managed 137 plant taxa in the previously very thinly recorded (4 spp) tetrad NG43Z. There were still Wood Anemones in flower

Anemones Allt Osglan

and I saw my first damselfly (Large Red) and dragonfly (Four-spotted Chaser) of the year.

The roadside by the northern edge of the tetrad yielded a nice patch of Trollius europaeus (Globeflower) next to some fine specimens of Orchis mascula (Early-purple Orchid).
