Black Lake, Delamere: detail of floating vegetation
The Black Lake SSSI shows a very early stage in the development of a schwingmoor basin fen, a type of quaking bog. It is part of the Meres and Mosses Ramsar site. This picture shows details of the vegetation, which is floating on the surface of the water (visible on the far left), including not only mosses and bog grass but also small deciduous trees. See also SJ5370 : Black Lake, Delamere: developing schwingmoor; a slightly later stage in schwingmoor development is shown in SJ5370 : Black Lake, Delamere: consolidated schwingmoor
