The Solway Firth is a large macrotidal estuary situated on the west coast of Britain and represents one of the largest tidal embayments in the north eastern Irish Sea. It has been designated as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) under the EU Habitats Directive and as such Natural England (and Scottish Natural Heritage), have a duty to assess the condition of the SAC’s features once every six years. Natural England has commissioned this study in order to monitor and assess the extent and condition of the intertidal rocky scars sub-feature on the English side of the Solway Firth SAC.
