Nature Notes from Argyll
(and occasionally other places)
Thu 16 Aug 2012 Lismore. Outing organised by Oban U3A Wild Flower Group.
Hawthorn sculpted by sheep.
Marestail, with Bogbean, Kilcheran Loch
Unbranched Bur-reed, Kilcheran Loch
Hemp Agrimony, by Kilcheran Loch
Knotted Pearlwort, by Loch Fiart
Empty caddisfly larval cases, packed together like this on a
stone in the inlet burn to Loch Fiart.
Rock-rose. Common on Lismore, very rare in the rest of Argyll.
It was a bit breezy for taking plant photos, but the sunshine
enabled sharp pictures of things that were blowing about wildly. Rock-rose and
Wild Basil. It was almost over; this plant with two
flowers left was the best I could find.
Crested Hair-grass. In Argyll, found only on the Lismore
