The bog in question was Carrot Hill Meadow SSSI and this particular bog is very different to those that we've previously worked at as it's a fen fed by nutrient-rich spring water. This means there's a wide variety of wildflowers and scarce plants growing there. So not much in the way of acidic loving species such as heather and sphagnum.
Our task for the day was to block up various ditches and channels that were leading to water loss from the site and threatening the plant communities that thrive here.
Firstly there were two plastic piling dams to put in - they put up some resistance but we got there in the end thanks to the volunteers hard efforts.
