Comment: The Northern part of the unit (to the north of the dividing hedge) was in favourable condition as all targets were passed. However, the condition of the sward could be improved further through heavier grazing/additional cut. The thistles on the Eastern slope of the field are in need of management also. The Southern part of the unit (to the south of the dividing hedgerow) was much less species rich, dominated by Centaurea nigra and <5% grasses. Heavier grazing/additional cut would also be beneficial here. Rhinanthus Angustifolius was abundant and so has been assessed as favourable.
Number of adverse condition reasons: 0
