Bryophytes for Beginners - Exploring Presteigne - 21/01/2018

Part of the BORDER BRYOLOGISTS training & recording programme for 2018, helping beginners learn mosses and liverworts, rather than high-powered recording sessions.

Sunday 21st January 2018, 10.30 a.m. Please bring lunch or money for pub lunch.

Meet at the car park by the B4355 at the west end of Presteigne (SO 309651).

Bryologists can often find many species in built-up districts, where pavements and tarmac, mortared walls, roofs and soil offer a variety of habitats. We will put this statement to the test by exploring Presteigne in Radnorshire. Included in its variety of habitats, Presteigne has several public houses, so you won’t need sandwiches if you fancy a pint at lunchtime.

You may wish to bring with you a copy of the British Bryological Society’s Mosses and Liverworts of Britain and Ireland: a Field-guide (2010), files for which are also on-line at (or click on the book cover of the Field-guide on the left-hand side of the BBS web-site’s home page at and follow the links).
