Site summary
Two mountain chains in the Jura range, separated by an open valley which contains wet meadows, bogs and a small lake. An important site for breeding subalpine species, particulary Ring Ouzel and Citril Finch. Species of global conservation concern that do not meet IBA criteria: Corncrake. The forest tree community is changing as a result of the decline of forest grazing. This has resulted in increased grazing pressure on meadows.
