This area has excellent bog habitat with an exceptionally rich flora and fauna. It supports many dragons and damsels, including Keeled Skimmer, Four-spotted Chaser and Small Red Damselfly. A colony of the Scarce Blue-tailed Damselfly was confirmed here in 2000 (including the orange immature forma aurantiaca) but now appears to be lost.
Other attractions include rare orchids and Przewalski horses.
