Dalgety bay - Oh, you pretty thing

Back from a refreshing trip to even sunnier and even hotter climes, here's a brief update of stuff wot I failed to update on pre-departure

I have removed Equisetum palustre from the list because when I went back and grilled it properly I decided it was E.arvense. Shame, that. Still, won't be the last, I'm sure.

Also, here's one from Skye that I fed into my workstream - the hairy-faced Dolichopus nubilus from Uig Bay 24/06/2018. A proper list must be in order at some point.

  1. Nice, Ali, but what's this phrase "fed into my workstream"? Have you got a stream at work?

    1. Oh, an endless stream ... but we live in hope
