Sunday 27th October 2019 – Crockford Bottom marl pits, New Forest

This area in the southern New Forest includes streams, flushes, marl pits and bogs on the bryophyte-rich Headon Beds. The site includes records for a wide range of Sphagna, including S. contortum and S. subsecundum, ‘brown mosses’ of calcareous mires, including the Nationally Scarce Campyliadelphus elodes, and some exacting liverworts.

Meet at the southern of the two car parks near Crockford Bridge at SZ 349 988 off the B3054, Lymington road, south of Furzey Lodge and Beaulieu. Conditions can be very wet, so wellington boots are advised.

Leaders: John Norton and Sharon Pilkington
