FC6 – A small area of scrub just west of the Snape Maltings complex runs into permanent wet grassland and further west semi-permanent wet grassland. Both areas are grazed by cattle and sheep. About 20% of the flood cell is in arable. There is a freshwater coarse fishing lake at Blaxhall.
FC 7 – is a complex mix of habitats including arable, semi-permanent and permanent wet grasslands, reedbed, water meadow and man-made freshwater lakes. The eastern end of the flood cell comprises Snape Marshes with a mosaic of wetland habitats including cattle-grazed permanent wet grassland. Other habitats in this area include; herb-rich meadows, reedbed, scrub and wet woodland. Good populations of plants and butterflies are present. 14 species of dragonfly have been recorded.
