These habitats are typically damp habitats dominated by tussocky purple moor grass (Molinia caerulea), rushes (Juncus spp.) or both. These are typically botanically species-poor, but in the uplands can provide cover for breeding wading birds such as lapwing (Vanellus vanellus), curlew (Numenius arquata), redshank (Tringa totanus) and snipe (Gallinago gallinago) – though this is increasingly uncommon. More likely that the habitat will be barren, with little or no associated biodiversity interest.
