Flora and Fauna at Sanaigmore, 15th August 2011

There was a total of 16 of us for today's ramble at Sanaigmore - the most yet and we were blessed with beautiful sunshine throughout the ramble. New for our rambles list was an Ear Moth sp. (of which there are four species, all very difficult to tell apart). Other highlights included baby toads and shore crabs. Thanks to everyone for attending and I hope we'll see you all on another ramble. Please let me know any ommissions.
