Ornithological information The site is important for woodland species.
Site description The IBA encompasses part of the Kamp valley and the adjoining plateau. The river course is still unregulated. The slopes are covered by mixed and broadleaved deciduous forest, whilst areas with easier access have largely been replaced by conifer plantations. More open areas are dominated by arable agriculture, within a mosaic of hedgerows, hay-meadows, dry grassland, small wetlands and orchards.

Management considerations With the exception of areas where forestry is not allowed (in order to protect soil and water resources) intensification of forestry and plantations are a major threat. In arable and grassland areas, intensification and the abandonment of traditional management practices are threats. Planned tourism developments, such as golf courses, provide an additional threat.
