March marked the end to our biggest capital work season so far: 2019 has seen 3,000 bags of heather brash flown and spread, 360 gully blocks built and 13 hectares of sphagnum planted. These will help to protect peat, rewet the moors and support natural flood management.

These single-species plugs were planted @RSPBDoveStone in 2016. We checked them last week and they've grown up to 15cm in diameter (from 3-4cm) and taken on their distinctive wine colour. This is sphagnum magellanicum #SphagnumMonday
