"Parts of this little bog put me in mind of Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles, except over there the English and Scots mostly call them "mires" or "moors"...but I'm not sure theirs are as wet as some of our wetland bogs."

I think their "mires" are most similar to our bogs, while "moors" are drier. Moors may have once been mires used as a public arena by British comedians. ;-)
