Annex I habitats that are a primary reason for selection of this site

6410 Molinia meadows on calcareous, peaty or clayey-silt-laden soils (Molinion caeruleae)
Drostre Bank is selected for its species-rich example of the typical form of Molinia caerulea Cirsium dissectum fen-meadow (M24b). This vegetation is particularly well-characterised, having a high frequency of mildly base-demanding species, such as tawny sedge Carex hostiana, flea sedge C. pulicaris, quaking-grass Briza media and marsh valerian Valeriana dioica. There are well-displayed transitions to a floristically related form of rush-pasture, as well as to base-rich flush and wet woodland.
