This survey aims to provide additional knowledge of the boulder and cobble skear habitats of the Drigg coast to inform condition assessments of this site as part of SSSI and SAC monitoring requirements. This report outlines the methodology and results of the rocky shore intertidal surveys, describes the presence and extent of the boulder and cobble skear grounds, gives an indication of the faunal composition of these features, and provides a general account of anthropogenic pressures identified at the time of survey that may impact the integrity of the EMS.
