unrivalled taxonomic expertise
This was my favourite survey in 2014. It was a Cumbria Wildlife Trust nature reserve between Penrith and Keswick. The special feature of the site was a series of roughly parallel valley mires between ridges.
The wetland vegetation types included M4, M6, M9, M18, M21 and S27. There were 18 Sphagnum species including abundant Sphagnum contortum in the M9 vegetation. I also found 20 Carex species including Carex diandra, Carex limosa and Carex pauciflora.
