More Skunk cabbage from Strathconon earlier this year

Found at a garden pond in Strathconon with a burn leading into the main River Meig. A potential problem but doesn't appear to be at the moment according to Meryl.
Also found in another garden pond leading into the main Conon river system. The Victorians have a lot to answer for.
