Botanical Group - Hoy
by Unknown - 21:48 on 05 July 2012
The 4th July saw the botanists island hopping again...a trip to the ever interesting north end of Hoy...Starting at the very misty bomb crater pool at Braebuster the various Fragrant Orchids, Heath Spotted and Northern fen orchids just coming into bloom colourfully dotted amongst the Heather, sedges and grasses with Tormentil, St John's Wort and Hieraceum spp in this very special part of Hoy. This was followed by a midgy-feed at the Nowt Bield where the Yellow saxifrage, Early Marsh Orchid, Sundews and Butterworts made up for the pain. This was followed by a quick trip to the Rackwick dragonfly pool (none there) and a research trip to the cafe. The day ended with a search for the tiny Lesser Adder's Tongue, the Heath Cudwort and Marsh Violets at Lyawra.
