Dunes develop where windblown sand becomes trapped by specialised dune-building grasses such as Marram grass. From windswept ridges to damp hollows (slacks), the range of conditions supports a surprisingly rich variety of wildlife (LINK)
The dense tufts of spiky Marram Grass are a distinctive feature of this plant. Its leaves are rolled and dense flower spikes appear in July and August.
