The date of closure will be the 28th February. All discussion will now take place on the Curracag Facebook group at www.facebook.com/groups/curracag

If you are particularly interested in birds, in light of the Curracag decision, Outer Hebrides Birds has totally re-vamped their website and will now contain details of sightings, photographs, discussion and a number of resources for birds and birding in the Outer Hebrides.

Re: Badhamia lilacina

Thanks for posting this Brian, a nice record. If Terry could send in his records to OHBR, they would be much appreciated.

Slime Moulds are not strictly fungi but are treated as honorary members.

Best wishes, Chris

Plain Earthtongue

The OHBR meeting at Scotveinn last Sunday, hosted by Gwen and Peter, and led by the usual culprits, was very enjoyable. The first Waxcaps and Pinkgills had appeared and the first Earth Tongue of the season. These are good indicators of unimproved grassland and OHBR would be grateful for any records....

Re: Askernish moths, 19th July 2014

A nice haul, Yvonne, especially the Ermine.

The last image is Agriphila tristella. The white line, which splays into 'fingers' towards the rear, can be quite bold in fresh specimens.

Re: Dragonfly - Four spotted Chaser??

I agree with Paul, an immature female Common Darter Sympetrum striolatum.
