One Last Time – For a While

I am about to head south for three weeks so there may be rather few posts here for a bit.  This morning I toured parts of mid- and North Skye to check on Martin’s Acaena anserinifolia (Bronze Pirri-pirri-bur) at Glasphein – absolutely right, of course, and the second vice-county record.

John’s Cotoneaster bullatus (Hollyberry Cotoneaster) and, as it turned out, adding new 10km square records for Aster x salignus (Michaelmas Daisy), Crocosmia pottsii (Potts’ Montbretia), Persicaria campanulata (Lesser Knotweed) and Spergularia marina (Lesser Sea-spurrey).

The Crocosmia pottsii distribution map for the vice-county now looks like this (and I suspect this plant remains under-recorded):
