Lowland raised bog restoration

By March 6, 2017May 22nd, 2019No Comments

We were awarded a contract to work with the RSPB and Garnock Connections Landscape Partnership this month.  We therefore decided to go and have a look at a couple of lowland bog restoration sites before we started.

There have been some interesting developments at Fannyside Moss where we did a restoration feasibility study (now with heavily-flooded drain channels) and at Portmoak where a raised bog rand has been re-profiled (can’t say we are entirely clear on the long-term benefits of this but interesting to see the process nevertheless).
