In the moor areas and boggy meadows, you can find numerous plant species adapted to marshy conditions, including Marsh Violet, Marsh Cinquefoil, Bog Bean and two different Cotton Grass species, while the Bog Arum can be found in the siltation zone of a pond.
The banks of the stream are adorned with the blue-flowers of the poisonous Monkshood, and are home to rare insects like the Marsh Grasshopper, Scarce Copper Butterfly and Beautiful Demoiselle. Stream inhabitants like Kingfisher, Bullhead and Brook Lamprey also find ideal habitats here.
