Comment: Joint visit by M Sutcliffe and C Port. The unit is comprised of blanket bog (about 15 ha) in the western part of the unit, dry heath including some acid grassland and flush (M6c) mosaic (about 18 ha) along the western boundary and in the central area and acid grassland (about 7 ha) along the eastern boundary with a large conifer plantation. The blanket bog was mostly in favourable condition with good diversity of dwarf shrubs and Sphagna. The dry heath failed on low diversity, being mostly a heather monoculture with other dwarf shrubs only occasional. The age structure was also young with very little late-mature phase present. Sustainable levels of grazing and burning have been implemented under a HLS agreement AG00269793 which started in November 2008. The burning rotation has been increased to 12-18 years, the longer rotation applying to blanket bog and slower growing dry heath areas.
