About the reserve
A relic of wet heath, at Edgehills Bog nature reserve purple moor-grass, sphagnum moss and rushes dominate the boggy areas, along with common cotton-grass, marsh violet and carnation sedge. The drier parts contain heather, bilberry, heath milkwort and lousewort. Heathland and woodland birds, and dragonflies and damselflies are frequently on the wing, sharing the land with free-roaming sheep who gently conservation graze the site.
