They present some of the greatest opportunities for habitat restoration and creation.

Black Mountains Land Use Partnership successfully through to stage 2 with a new approach to upland commons management A local group – The Black Mountains Land Use Partnership – announced today that its application has been successful in getting through to stage 2 of the Welsh Government’s bidding process for its Sustainable Management Scheme.

Brecon Beacons, in southern Wales; Black Mountains, in southern Wales; Cambrian Mountains, in mid Wales; Snowdonia, in northern Wales; Dartmoor, in southwestern England; Exmoor, in southwestern England; Pennines, in northern England; North York Moors, in northern England.

Upland land use is associated with curlew declines, with predation a likely mechanism, and this may apply to other breeding waders. The removal of isolated woodland plantations from otherwise unafforested landscapes may help reduce predation pressure across a range of systems including by: COVID Resources.

An Illustrated Guide to British Upland Vegetation The different regions of upland Great Britain are distinctive in their geology, terrain, climate, land use and vegetation.

For example, there are the rounded grassy and boggy hills of central Wales; the steep, craggy mountains of north-west Wales, the Lake District and the western.

Much of the land in England is flat (low lying) - less than m above sea level, forming meadowlands and pastures and less than 10 percent of the area is covered by woodlands. Farmers raise animals or grow crops in the fields. Read more about farming. Upland areas are generally confined to northern England: the exceptions are the upland moors.

The dominant land use is extensive sheep farming, although the catchment is important for drinking water supply. The catchment is typical of many upland areas in England in that attempts were made in latter 20th century to drain the blanket bog and wet heath to make the land more productive for sheep by: 4.
