30 Days Wild - Day 10 - Malham Tarn Peat Bog - drying up

Today we calked across Malham Tarn Peat Bog to Spiggott Hill, and beyond in search of more sedges. The recent spell of dry weather is causing the water table to lower.
This looks as if it had once been a pool

This is one of the recently bunded pools that till has water  in it.. just.
Here we are looking at the peat bank where Judith used to carry out pollen analysis with sixth formers. Normally standing here we would have been  in the tarn with water almost over our welly-boots .

This is one of the peat pools by the board walk.
