Sphagna at Muckle Moss

Outdoor Event, 10.30am <br /><br /> Following last year’s very successful bryophyte identification day in the Irthing Gorge, this year we will concentrate on Sphagna and other bog species at the famous locality of Muckle Moss. Northumberland is famous for its Sphagnum bogs and this site has some notable rarities. John O’Reilly the vice-county recorder for bryophytes will help us with the identification. It will be very wet underfoot, and wellingtons are strongly recommended.
Meet on the Stanegate (the road parallel to and south of the B6318 Military Road) at about OS grid ref NY 800673, parking where we can by the roadside. Bring lunch. Beginners are very welcome.
