Cohan,

A holt or more common skogholt means a small patch of wood in Norwegian. The same root as Holtz in German.

We do not run out of rocks here! We have all kind of it but unfortunately I can't collect them from all the places I want to!

Very nice images Trond and so many ferns :)
I think there are some subsp. of trichomanes? it surely looks very different.

Thanks Gabriela.

It is several subspecies of trichomanes and possibly two are found is this area but the this one one is neither. It is probably a mutation and is completely sterile.

This species does often grow like that in huge patches. The other common native species (alternifolia) makes much smaller patches.

I only know the regular one; could it be a hybrid of some sort?
If a natural mutation you can try to cultivate it and give it a cultivar name :)

I don't think it is a hybrid, more likely a mutation. I have heard similar ones are found once or twice before.

On the skerries west of Bømlo. Yesterday we went by boat to some smaller islands and skerries to look at the flora. We couldn't go ashore everywhere as seagulls and terns were nesting there. The number of seabirds have diminished considerably during the last 50 years so we didn't want to disturb the rather few we saw.

Bird droppings are very nutritious but not all plants like that! One that does is the red campion (Silene dioica).

On one of the bigger islands (uninhabited but sheep are grazing there) we found several colour forms of Polygala serpyllifolia. The common colour is blue.

Trond, I have recently seen Tormentil with five petals. On making enquiries it seems this has been seen in other parts of the UK.

Ian, that's interesting. I have seen it once or twice only.
