This SAC has been chosen as a prime example of
sessile oak woodland, with fragments of floodplain woodlands in the
valley bottoms. It was the first breeding site for barbastelle bats
to be found in West Wales. This type of oak woodland is typically
dominated by sessile oak, with holly in the shrub layer and hard
fern. The floodplain woodland is characterised by alder and ash,
and tends to occur with willow. Most of the bat roosts are in
cracks or behind the flaking bark of trees, often associated with
large ivy stems. A number of rare lichens can be found growing on
