This form is echoing the baulks and ditches of the peat banks, I transcribed a list of all the native flora and fauna I found in Lenzie Moss Management 2009-2014 Plan: http://www.friendsoflenziemoss.org.uk/docs/managementplan.pdf

and History of Lenzie Moss: http://www.friendsoflenziemoss.org.uk/docs/History%20of%20Lenzie%20Moss.pdf. Amazingly I didn’t know that there are many rare species that survive here in the nutrient poor environment. I learned a new word as well, Ombrotrophic (soils or vegetation receive all of their water and nutrients from precipitation, rather than from streams or springs). I did think it rains too much here. I knew there were rare birds nesting.
