Comment: Unit is divided in two, the northern half being more established 'heath', and south being a former conifer plantation in early restoration stages. Northern half dominated by wavy hair grass (c75% cover) with a bryophyte ground cover, and pockets of heather and descrete scrub blocks. Heather was mainly building or young 'mature' phase, with small areas of pioneer. Heather beetle damage was apparent in 20% of the heath. Site grazed by exmoor ponies and hebs/manx sheep. Negative indicators were absent, and there was a low level of birch seedling in the sward. Southern half of the site recently restored, with much bare ground. Bracken cover over c50%. Established glades of mature heather plus large area of pioneer growth due to seeding by site managers. Overall the site remains RECOVERING.
