Comment:

The unit comprises dry heath on the ridge around Action Moor, blanket bog on the flatter plateau and fragmented dry heath and acid grassland on the lower slopes (to the east of the unit). 18 quadrats were assessed across the unit, the majority of which fell within areas of dry heath and fragmented dry heath. Overall the main issues across the habitats are a lack of species diversity and the grazing pressure. Grazing pressure was very variable across the unit and it was most evident on areas of fragmented heather and where recent burns had occurred. There was very limited signs of grazing pressure where the heather was in the mature growth stage or where it comprised a continuous stand. The main issue across the unit is lack of shepherding and pressure from winter grazing.
