  • PF: for the habitat types that can have a non-priority as well as a priority form (6210, 7130, 9430) enter "X" in the column PF to indicate the priority form.
  • NP: in case that a habitat type no longer exists in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Cover: decimal values can be entered
  • Caves: for habitat types 8310, 8330 (caves) enter the number of caves if estimated surface is not available.
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation)

Other Site Characteristics

An extensive area of upland, composed of Yoredale shales and Carboniferous Sandstones, straddling the international boundary with Northern Ireland, and covered with montane blanket bog, wet heath, humid grassland, with some small oligotrophic lakes and numerous headstreams and flushes. Inland cliffs of shales occur at the higher elevations and include important fossil remains, notably goniatites.

4.2 Quality and importance

One of the more extensive areas of intact montane blanket bog in Ireland, with exceptionally well developed vegetation cover in flat plateau areas, including dystrophic lakes, hummock and hollow complexes and large areas of wet heath, and to a lesser extent dry heath. Inland cliffs support a range of locally rare mountain plants. The site is an important breeding area for several upland birds.
