Tuesday 26th June, 2018
Parking will be on John Escritt Road.

Today we will be using public transport and sharing cars. Parking will be on John Escritt Road. 

Bingley South Bog is a SSSI and abounds with plant and animal life. BEES has never visited either of these sites. The South Bog is an alkaline fen mire with a mosaic of damp grassland and wetland communities. The regionally rare Marsh Cinquefoil grows here with Marestail and Arrow grass. Orchids may be found. The North Bog is fed from an acid stream running off the hillside, and we would hope to see Lesser Pond-sedge, Ragged-robin and Water Figwort.
