And Another Thing

At Plockton I spotted several plants of Thlaspi arvense (Field Penny-cress). This appears to be the first record for VC105. The only VC104 record is from Soay in 1946.  The BRC Online Atlas describes it as follows:

“An annual found as an arable weed, particularly with broad-leaved crops and mainly on heavier soils. It is also a frequent weed on disturbed roadsides, and in waste places and gardens.”

It is really quite common further south.
