New yellow horned-poppy record!

The next day was spent walking from Bowmore, along the coast,  to Laggan Point. The highlight of the day was finding a big stand of yellow horned-poppy which has since been confirmed as a new to the vice-county of Islay, Jura and Colonsay. The closest record previously was from 2001 from Mull and Kintyre.

Another highlight was the otter that popped up while stopped for lunch together with the usual seals, black guillemots, dunlin, fulmar, a juvenile golden eagle and large flocks of twite.

Eel grass and Japweed seaweed.
