4. SITE DESCRIPTION

4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover
N01100.00

Total Habitat Cover

100

Other Site Characteristics

Marine area, 1170 Reefs cover 20 % of the area. Shelters internationally important concentrations (above 1% of flyway population) for Little Gull (Larus minutus). The stony reef areas support diverse biological communities representative of hard substratum with many associated species including epibenthos. The habitat is dominated by the red algae Furcellaria lumbricalis, the bivalve Mytilus trossulus and the cirriped Balanus improvisus. The brown alga Fucus vesiclosus co-dominates. Bivalves act as important food source for some fish species and also in shallower areas support the migrating waterbirds populations by being a feeding ground.

4.2 Quality and importance

Marine area. Qualifiying feature is habitat 1170 Reefs. Hosts bird species Gavia stellata, Gavia arctica, Larus minutus.
