Last weekend the Bog Squad celebrated Easter with a work party at a very soggy Blairbeich Bog. We had returned to finish off the ditch blocking that we had started a few weeks earlier in slightly sunnier weather.
Despite the rain we managed to build a further five ditch-blocking dams which will help retain valuable water on the bog. By the end of the day the dams were all holding good amounts of water which wasn't too surprising given the amount that was falling out of the sky!
We also found time to clear some of the invasive pine scrub that is encroaching onto the bog. All in all a great days work! Many thanks to those who came along to help us out.
