Peat track walk

Looking for and identifying carnivorous plants

An evening walk with Henry Memmott along some Birsay peat tracks. Orkney’s bog habitats are home to a huge variety of plants, including some with carnivorous behaviours; relying on insects to supplement the nutrients which are otherwise in short supply. A short, but possibly swampy, walk will aim to identify two key carnivorous species which grow here: sundews and butterworts, and showcase their glorious habitat. Meet at 6pm at the layby overlooking the turbines on Hillside Road.
