Annex II species that are a primary reason for selection of this site

1092 White-clawed (or Atlantic stream) crayfish  Austropotamobius pallipes
This lowland site in central England represents white-clawed crayfish Austropotamobius pallipes in standing water. This 1 ha marl pit holds a very large population, estimated at 50,000. Although crayfish plague outbreaks have occurred in the Midlands, this waterbody is isolated from river systems and is a good example of a ‘refuge’ site in an important part of the species’ former range.
