  • 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)

3.2 Species referred to in Article 4 of Directive 2009/147/EC and listed in Annex II of Directive 92/43/EEC and site evaluation for them

Total Habitat Cover

Other Site Characteristics

This area is probably underlain by carboniferous limestone bedrock with low permeability tills with a clayey matrix. The southern section of the site fills a depression between two drumlin ridges while the northern section consists of a thin layer of peat overlying a drumlin ridge.

4.2 Quality and importance

Flughany bog is a small raised bog site which contains examples of the Annex I habitats active raised bog, degraded raised bog and depressions on peat substrates (Rhynchosporion). The bog is one of a series of small to medium-sized raised bogs which occur close to the north-westerly limit of raised bog formation along the border between counties Mayo and Sligo. The site supports a good range of raised bog habitats including well-developed pool and hummock area, flushed areas (including a swallow-hole) and an area with shallow peat overlying a drumlin ridge. The site provides good habitat for both breeding and wintering Gallinago gallinago and also breeding Numenius arquata. Other typical bog fauna includes Lagopus lagopus and Lepus timidus hibernicus.
