Whixall & Bettisfield Mosses

Shropshire, Denbighshire 12th August 2022
led by
Jonathan Shanklin

These Mosses on the England-Wales border were described by James Robertson in the October 2021 issue of British Wildlife. They form a raised bog, which retains many botanical rarities. The meeting will show off some of these specialties, carry out some recording and provide help on identification of the more common species. We will be joined by members of Natural England’s Marches Mosses BogLIFE team who manage the National Nature Reserve. Some of the terrain that we will venture into is very uneven, though there are more even paths.

Meet: 10:00 am at Morris’ Bridge car park Whixall SJ493354. Nearest postcode SY13 2RX.
