Recently burnt heathland.......THE ROLE OF FIRE IN HEATHLAND AREAS

Heathlands dominated by ericaceous dwarf shrubs are widespread on acid nutrient-poor soils throughout those regions of north-western Europe with an Atlantic climate. They developed c. 4000 years ago following forest clearances and have been maintained by grazing, burning, turf cutting, and the gathering of vegetation for fuel. These activities arrest succession to scrub and woodland. Heathland is burnt to improve the forage for grazing stock but some fires are uncontrolled and wildfires may occur.

I found this on some site (far to tired to remember which one!!!)

Have a lovely day Alli.
Best regards from across the pond,
