About the reserve
The reserve is a heather moorland where bell heather, heather and western gorse dominate. In the wetter areas cross-leaved heath, purple moor-grass and rushes may be found while the bog has abundant Sphagnum moss and bog asphodel. Hen harriers, snipe and curlew may be observed.
Management: Dalby Mountain is managed within the Southern Uplands heath where blocks of heather are managed by burning and/or cutting in rotation to create a mosaic of heather stands of different ages.
