Comment:

The unit comprises primarily blanket bog with pockets of blanket bog and wet heath vegetation on shallower peat. Dry heath /acid grassland occurs along the western fringe. The blanket bog failed on 2 attributes: number of positivie indicator species and localised grazing pressure. There has been excellent recovery in the bare peat restoration area of Flow Moss. The area of dry heath is very marginal and only 3 quadrats fell within this habitat. the remainder of the points occured on acid grassland where there were no signs of dwarf shrubs. Where dry heath does occur it failed on the cover of dwarf shrubs and there was a high level of grazing pressure. The amount of soft rush within the unit also exceeded 10%.

Number of adverse condition reasons: 3
