New samples, new images.

We recently returned from another visit to Scotland - namely the Oban-Lorn area and the Isle of Arran.

Scotland is a very rich source of Bryophytes and it can be a bit overwhelming sometimes to see how many different species there are to be found. The climate helps a great deal coupled with the vast areas of undisturbed habitat. Needless to say, I found a few nice samples, got bitten by a couple of ticks, and we both had a great time there.

Below are a couple of images from our visit.

Now I have to fill out this site with more species and when this is done I will publicise it. If you are following this blog, please don't hesitate to write your own posts, ask questions or send me your Bryophyte images!
