We had a fantastic Lindow Moss Community Forum meeting last week with John giving us an update on his compartmental pH studies, a recorded piece from Jeff Clarke (the ecologist working for Croghan Peat…you can see his posts and some great photos on twitter @AnserEcology) detailing the reduction lizard numbers (and many damaged tails….is that the impact of dogs?) and a fantastic presentation from Professor Simon Caporn recording his summer plant hunt which he undertook with a number of members of the Forum and some Moss experts. He promises us more next summer!
We know no more about the plans for restoration, but Jeff told us he thought there would be some activity this autumn including removal of the young birch from cut over peat bog. We’ll let you know if we hear any more.
