The Site is a large, flat-mire landscape, with large moraine deposits which create a mosaic of dry and wet areas interspersed with ponds and lakes, smaller poor fens and low pine-covered knolls. The mosaic landscape is ideal breeding habitat for the common greenshank (Tringa nebularis) and the whimbrel (Numenius phaeopus). Broad-billed sandpiper (Limicola falcinellus), common crane (Grus grus) and Siberian tit (Poecile cinctus) also nest here. The Site is important for flood control during periods of heavy precipitation and snowmelt and acts as a reservoir during droughts. Forestry is among the main sources of income in the area, and the Site itself is used for low-impact hunting and fishing activities, with some sheep and cattle grazing.
