Something interesting is always turning up on St Kilda. Earlier this summer, scientists announced the discovery of a new species of dandelion on Hirta. It is thought to have developed from seeds brought by birds or human voyagers from Iceland. It has been named Dandelion Taraxacum Pankhurstianum and its seeds were first collected for investigation about two years ago.
