Delamere: Forest of Bogs

by WoodlandsTV ~ 8 October, 2019 ~ 5 comments

In the UK we have lost 95% of our lowland beat bogs. Whilst not typically thought of as an attractive habitat, they are a vital carbon store and are home to many plants, insects and animals, some of which are only found in these areas.

Delamere Forest in Cheshire features a wealth of mosses and bogs - thanks to Forestry England, in partnership with the Cheshire Wildlife Trust, who have undertaken to restore these important ecosystems to their former glory.

by WoodlandsTV ~ 9 August, 2019 ~ 5 comments

Lichenologist Joe Hope takes us to a secret location known as Lobaria Glen, where we discover many of the unusual lichens that are now only to be found in ancient woodlands on the humid west coast. These lichens used to be much more common across the British Isles, but habitat destruction and pollution, especially since the Industrial Revolution with its increase in sulphur dioxide and acid rain, have had such a drastic impact that they are now increasingly rare.
