|2003 - the site is largely bare peat and exposed mineral soil|
|2005 - after initial treatment with heather brash, lime, seed and fertilizer the grass 'nurse crop' is in evidence. Note the empty brash bags awaiting removal.|
|2008 - repeat treatments have allowed the nurse crop to become established, knitting the peat surface together.|
|2010 - the nurse grasses have almost completely covered the bare peat, and there is evidence of other plants becoming established.|
|2013 - the area of exposed mineral soil is noticeably reduced and there are signs of dwarf shrubs like heather growing.|
|2016 - the dwarf shrub coverage has increased as can be seen by this heather in flower.|
