Site description
Bodmin Moor occupies much of the central part of east Cornwall, and is notable as a low-altitude moorland with Atlantic elements in its flora and fauna. Acid grassland, heathland, and bog and mire wetland plant communities are widespread. The IBA is important for breeding waders and other moorland species, and wintering raptors.
