Estimated year unit will go Favourable: Confidence in estimate:
Comment: The majority of the unit consists of deep peat blanket bog, with some degraded blanket bog and acid grassland habitat in the northern corner. The blanket bog passed on frequency of indicator species, with 6 indicator species consistently frequent: heather, crowberry, bilberry, hare?s tail cotton-grass, bog mosses and pleurocarpus mosses. Cross-leaved heath, cowberry, common cotton-grass and cloudberry were also occasional. The cover of indicator species was consistently high, with very little cover of other species such as Polytrichum moss. There is an area of large, deep peat haggs within the hill-top blanket bog habitat near the southern boundary of the unit. This area is showing good signs of recovery with common cotton-grass re-colonising the areas of bare peat. There were no signs of aggravated livestock associated erosion of the haggs which appeared to be stable.
