Comment: The unit is a mosaic of heath and acid grassland with an area of bracken at the western end of Waskerley Reservoir (north shore). Round-leaved crowfoot and pondweed were present in the streams, ditches and active grips. The unit failed on lack of indicator species which is being addressed by management plans. Sphagnum and Eriophorum angustifolium were present in the wetter areas and Nardus stricta was frequent in the grassy areas. All phases of heather except the degenerate stage were present with approximately 20% in the late mature phase. There wer no non-native species, no trees or scrub and no weedy species. There were a few active grips in the centre of the unit and successfully blocked grips at the western end of the site.
