Comment: The unit takes in part of one of the raised shingle ridges and although variable in terms of quality of habitat, includes some areas of species-rich shingle vegetation. Parts appear to have suffered disturbance in the past but typical vegetation has re-established and there is no evidence of recent disturbance of the fossil geomorphology. The fossil geomorphology is visible in that the fossil ridge crest can still be seen, although dissected by the runways. There is no evidence of disturbance of buried geomorphology. Areas of dry shingle ridge vegetation are present in various places but is best represented on the part of the ridge between the runways. Here the community includes several characteristic plants including wood sage, sheep?s sorrel, sheep?s fescue, common bent and catsear with occasional patches of Cladonia lichen and mossy patches with Dicranum scoparium, Hypnum cupressiforme and Polytrichum spp. Of particular interest is the presence of sand sedge in places. The vegetation is maintained in a suitably short condition by rabbit grazing.
