Day 4 of training for the North Face Survey was a very successful day. We made many records of Arctic and Starwort Mouse Ear, Alpine Speedwell and a great find of Alpine Meadow Grass by Will. We found the previously recorded Tufted, Drooping and Highland Saxifrage and the big result was recording Alpine Saxifrage on Ben Nevis, the first time this has been done, found by the botanist Ian.

The geologists were out too making all sorts of records and Donald found a new fault - Donald's Fault. It was great seeing the expert geologists and botanists work together to further each others knowledge. Tomorrow, the last day of training, we'll get the long ropes out and set up some big abseils. Fun, fun, fun.
