Comment: This unit was assessed together with Amy Christie. The lower part of the unit is a mosaic of rough acid grassland / dry heath / blanket bog. There is evidence of grazing pressure, particularly on the lower part of the unit, however limited grazing pressure soon becomes evident moving higher into the unit. On the flat plateau at the top, the vegetation consists of blanket bog, in general supporting a diverse number of species. Burning has occured in several areas directly adjacent to watercourses and along some of the steep slopes. However, this has now been addressed in the HLS agreement that commenced in November 2009, along with the issues associated with localised grazing pressure.
Number of adverse condition reasons: 1
