This type of farmland is found in the Shannon Callows. Each individual farm has a lower proportion of semi-natural habitat cover than whole or partial HNV farmland but these smaller proportions make up part of the whole floodplain which is nationally very important for wet grassland, hay meadows and breeding wader birds

Semi-natural habitat cover: Low to medium
Stocking density: Medium
Field boundary density: Medium
