A friend of mine who happens to be a bryologist visited last weekend and was more than willing to be dragged out "mossing" on the Nunnery Lakes reserve.

Lucy Wright, Rob Robinson and Ian Yates were the BTO moss-finding team, with identification assistance from our friends Amy Eycott and Jo Inchbald. We spent most of our time in the brecky bit of the reserve on our hands and knees with bums in the air and noses on the ground; this resulted in a few interesting comments from passers-by, one of whom asked if we had found gold... which indeed we had, in the form of 17 moss species in a 2-hour visit! A great start but I'm sure there are many more to come.
