Lionel Kelleway and Mark Lawley getting close to mosses in a woodland bordering Shropshire and Herefordshire.
Lionel Kelleway and Mark Lawley get close to some mosses in a woodland on the border of Shropshire and Herefordshire.

Mosses

The rich green and light olive colours of mosses are a welcome sight in a damp, cold colourless winter. With the moisture of autumn and winter mosses come into their own and it is the best time of year to see them.

They can be found on nearly every surface from roof tiles, to tree bark, gravestones, in fact anywhere you choose to look.  Armed with a hand-lens this fascinating miniature world comes into view.

Lionel joined Mark Lawley, a local bryologist, to explore the mosses to be found in a woodland on the border of Shropshire and Herefordshire.
