Bryophyte Meetings 2018-19

Bryophyte Meetings
Winter 2018 to Spring 2019

Here are all dates for the coming bryophyte season. These meetings are open for everyone with an interest in bryophytes. The field meetings start at 10:00 a.m. and take as long as people are interested, and as weather conditions allow, so it is always best to bring a packed lunch. Apart from weatherproof clothes, it is useful to bring a hand lens (x10 or x20) and some paper packets or small containers for collecting specimens. The BBS field guide (Mosses and Liverworts of Britain and Ireland: a Field-guide 2010) is very useful - the Field Key can be downloaded from the internet. Please contact Uta Hamzaoui ( or 07852 682 790), if would like to take part and to organise car sharing.

Great Merrible Wood Nature Reserve
Great Merrible Wood is an ancient woodland which is mostly managed with minimal intervention, and coppicing has been re-introduced in parts of it. Not many records exist from this site, but there is a variety of habitats such as old trees, some old coppice stools, ditches and streams, and it should be possible to find many interesting species, including epiphytes of course.
Meet at SP831958 and please park safely on the verge.

Holywell Wood SSSI
This ancient woodland is owned by Loughborough University who have kindly given us permission for the visit. The university has set up six plots to carry out some research in the wood, and if we are lucky, Jon Millett, who is responsible for these, will be able to join us and explain the experiments.
Meet in the car park at SK511181. The entrance to the wood is at SK508182.

Coombs Meadows Nature Reserve
This is one of the latest additions to LRWT's Nature Reserves. It consists of a number of small fields bounded by tall hedges on rather steep slopes. Some of the fields have been agriculturally improved but there are still springs and marshy areas as well as small streams. When the area was last surveyed for bryophytes in 1998, a good list was produced, which included rarities such as Riccia fluitans. which would be great to re-find.
Meet at SK775305 and please park safely on the verge.

Tbc in 2019.

Indoor Meetings at The Old Mill, Leicestershire & Rutland offices
If there is enough interest, we will follow up the field meetings by indoor meetings, when we can use the microscopes and work together on the material collected in the field. Suggested dates are the Thursday after each field meeting, but this will be confirmed on the field meetings. They will be held at 7p.m. at the LRWT offices at The Old Mill, 9 Soar Lane, Leicester, LE3 5DE.
