I had a few hours before an appointment in Broadford on Wednesday so went for a limestone fix in the woodland from Kilbride to Torrin. It turned out there were rather a lot of records needing refreshing in that particular patch and I only achieved partial coverage. However, the Neottia ovata (Common Twayblade) was in bud in several places including a patch of over 50 plants of which this image shows just a part:

Remarkably I added 28 taxa that were completely new to the tetrad taking the total to well over 300, including Tolmiea menziesii (Pick-a-back-plant):

    I had spotted that NG52V needed refreshing and did pay a visit earlier this month. Sounds like you found more than I did though.

    Still plenty of taxa not re-found!
