Floodplain grazing marsh Habitat Definition

Floodplain grazing marsh is an area of lowland grassland within a floodplain, which is seasonally inundated with water. The grassland may or may not be species rich. Species-poor versions are, none-the-less, important as habitat for wading birds. Species rich versions of this type of grassland should be additionally recorded under lowland meadows and pasture (see definition).
