Correl Glen and Lough Navar Forest

Fermanagh 11th – 12th May 2024
led by
Robert Northbridge, Joanne Denyer, Rory Hodd.

Following the talks on bryophytes at the Irish Autumn Conference, this is a joint meeting of the BSBI and the British Bryological Society (BBS) to enable BSBI members to learn more about bryophytes in the field. The Correl Glen and Lough Navar Forest are among the richest areas for bryophytes in Northern Ireland. Apart from mosses and liverworts there will be an opportunity to see some of the specialities of the north facing scarps and woodland: both filmy ferns (Hymenophyllum spp.), Dryopteris aemula (Hay-scented Buckler-fern), Asplenium viride (Green Spleenwort), Orthilia secunda (Serrated Wintergreen) and Saxifraga aizoides (Yellow Saxifrage) are possibilities.

Meet at the car park at the entrance to Lough Navar Forest Park (H074547) at 10:30am on both days. Bring packed lunches and be prepared for some rough ground.
