Comment:

The unit comprises a mosaic of blanket bog vegetation around the western end of the site and dry heath on the lower rocky slopes. The blanket bog was found to be recovering and failed only on the number of positive indicator species in 3 out of the 8 quadrats. Where sphagnum was found to be present there was an excellent cover of this species with at least 50% or more cover. There were also some excellent examples of the hummock and hollow structure in this area. The dry heath lacked species diversity and was still fragmented in places, covering less than 50%. It is still dominated by heather with very few other dwarf shrub species noted. Localised grazing pressure was evident in 3 out of the 8 quadrats and soft rush was high particularly to the east of the unit. The bird numbers could not be assessed due to the timing of the year. It is worth noting that there was very little mature / late mature stands of heather in this unit.
