Did you come along on the live peatland journey? Even though current restrictions don't allow for gathering together i wanted to help bring a little piece of the peatlands to you.
So armed with my camera my phone and an almost perfect internet connection I proceeded to try and capture a few of your requests from last night. You asked to see the bog cotton and some dragonflies. The link below has the live version of what the peatland is looking like and it's stunning!
Luckily I had my camera with me and I managed to get set up and capture lots of different types of dragonflies as well as swathes of soft white cotton grass. I was completely bowled over when I saw how much there was, it seemed to fill the landscape as far as the eye could see. As I wandered further large pools of water attracted many different insects. The dragonflies dipped in and out of the water enjoying the early morning sun.
What a perfect day for a peatland visit. Peaceful, beautiful and filled with life.
Keep an eye on socials for more pictures and video from this visit and let me know what you would like to see next time.
