Overview

Cuilcagh Mountain. 31/12/98; Northern Ireland; 2,744 ha; 54°13'N 007°48'W. The site is a large and relatively intact example of a blanket bog comprising an nutrient-poor lake and exhibiting a wide range of characteristic vegetation and structural features, with well-developed pool, acid flushes, and bog bursts. The bog vegetation is locally characterized by Sphagnum mosses but over most of the site dwarf-shrubs and graminoid species dominate. It supports Pluvialis apricaria and Falco columbarious. Human activities include grazing and nature conservation. Ramsar site no. 968. Most recent RIS information: 2005.
