That looks like the right consistency for an easy deep sink.
You said that you go there at dusk. Is there a privacy issue there? It looks like it is way off the beaten path.
Where do you clean up? Or do you just peel off all your gear and bag it?
It's more a personal preference. Although no one dares to enter the bog itself there is a small hiking path at the edge of that general area and there are also paddocks with horses or cows next to it. Also there are hunters sometimes. So on the way to or from that bog there is a slim chance to see someone else.
Cleanup is possible in a brook/ditch that forms the edge of the bog. It's deep and muddy too but better than nothing . In the end I pack all that gear into a large backpack
The pic shows the ditch that works also as a very effective barrier against any intruders. The worst (or best?) part of the bog is on the other side and you have to carefully wade through it. That exposed mud you can see gives an impression whats waiting there
