The richer stands of calcareous fen tend not have any single dominant species and are associated with a range of other fen habitats, particularly transition mires and tall herbs fens. In this image, the vegetation comprises a mix of fen species including saw sedge (Cladium mariscus), common reed (Phragmites australis), tufted sedge (Carex elata) and royal fern (Osmunda regalis). This type of vegetation closely resembles the the fen vegetation found in the fenland areas of East Anglia.
