Natura 2000 UK 2006

Moorland Habitats

A National Trust Perspective

slide4
The National Trust protects;
  • 250,000 hectares of countryside
  • 960 kilometres of coastline
  • 9% of SSSI’s contain Trust land
  • 86 SAC’s contain Trust land (209 total E,W&NI)
  • 26 SPA’s contain Trust land (95 total)
slide7
South Pennine Moors SAC
  • 64,983ha
  • One of 229 in UK
  • South Pennine Moors SPA
  • One of 77 in England
  • For; Short eared owl
  • Merlin
  • Golden plover
  • Internationally significant populations of breeding birds
slide8
Blanket bogs-

A vast carbon store

slide10
Managed grouse moors contain 46 other bird species

5 times more waders than unmanaged moors

slide12
Why do we need healthy moorlands?
  • Landscape
  • Carbon store
  • Water retention
  • Erosion protection
  • Recreation/Sport
  • Rare plants and other species
  • Bird habitats
slide15
Historical management for game has maintained the habitat
  • Predator control by keepers has benefited all moorland species
  • Control of sheep numbers has benefited the habitat
  • Monitoring has identified weaknesses in diversity of some habitats
  • Changes in current practices have been called for to try and correct this
  • Can a balance be found between sustainable shooting and changed
  • conservation management requirements?
  • Without any management, other than grazing, bird species will decline
  • If shooting ceases, can sustainable funding for predator control etc
  • be found?
slide16
Hen harriers reared 10 chicks from 2 nests

In 2006. Only the second time in the

Peak District since 1869.

All partners on the moor were involved

in a protection scheme.

Is this the future?

slide17
Can a sustainable balance be found without
  • adverse effects on other important species
  • for example the waders?
slide19
The Future
  • Realistic goals
  • Partnership
  • Understanding and respect
