WFS on Skye

I was delighted to receive some records from The Wild Flower Society following their recent visit to Skye. They added Berberis buxifolia (Box-leaved Barberry) to the vice-county list and made new hectad (10km square) records for a further eight taxa.  The latter were mostly introductions but a muddy roadside edge near Sligachan yielded Centunculus minimus (Chaffweed) and Juncus ranarius (Frog Rush). Both of these are scattered around the coast but whilst I have seen Chaffweed in muddy roadsides, this is the first time Frog Rush has turned up in this habitat in VC104.
