Bryophytes in Wyre

Winter is a good time to look out for mosses and liverworts in Wyre as they grow well in cool wet conditions, and many fruit during this time which helps identification. Good places to look are brooksides and tree trunks in stream valleys. But they can be found in all habitats as well as in gardens, on walls and fences.
