Here we have a peat bog slipping and sliding, believed to be caused by a prolonged dry spell followed by heavy rains that saturate the ground and cause the entire bog to float around like its on a giant air hockey table.

Bogs occur where the water at the ground surface is acidic and low in nutrients. In some cases, the water is derived entirely from precipitation, in which case they are termed cloud-fed.

Water flowing out of bogs has a characteristic brown colour, which comes from dissolved peat tannins. In general, the low fertility and cool climate result in relatively slow plant growth, but decay is even slower owing to the saturated soil.

Hence, peat accumulates. Large areas of the landscape can be covered many meters deep in peat.

A bog is one of the 4 main types of wetlands, the other 3 are marshes, swamps and fens
