Three species of heather, Baltasound
Three species of heather, Baltasound
Normally, the three common species of heather found in Britain are ecologically isolated, but in Shetland's mosaic of habitats these distinction break down. Here can be seen Bell Heather (Erica cinerea), with the dark flowers, Cross-leaved Heath (Erica tetralix)with the pale pink flowers, and Ling (Calluna vulgaris) with the smallest flowers. There is also a single flower of Tormentil (Potentilla erecta).
