Other Plant News

Ged did the Four Tops of Mhadaidh and Bidein Druim nan Ramh last week and sent images of various plants adding five to the tetrad, an increase of 26% on the existing post-1999 list for tetrad NG42L!

The new records were for Blechnum spicant (Hard-fern), Dryopteris dilatata (Broad Buckler-fern), Luzula sylvatica (Great Wood-rush), Phegopteris connectilis (Beech Fern), Rubus saxatilis (Stone Bramble) and Thymus polytrichus (Wild Thyme)

I may try a walk in from Loch Coruisk having got the boat from Elgol, to add some low-altitude species.

Meanwhile in Waterloo, Linda has found Ornithogalum umbellatum (Star-of-Bethlehem) as an established alien  – a first for VC104
