Comment: The grazed part of this Unit was identifed as being too heavily grazed at the last assessment (2009) and was reassessed this year to determine whether the agreed measures to halve the stocking time were resulting in recovery of the saltmarsh. Whilst the area of bare ground is under 25% the signs of poaching are abundant with cattle footprints causing localised bare ground throughout the grazing enclosure. There appears to be little change from 2009 in terms of the extent of poaching but the slight reduction in bare ground and the colonisation by annuals such as samphire means that 'recovering' status is still justified. However, the unit should be reassessed in 2013 to see whether substantive recovery has taken place or whether grazing pressure needs to be reduced further.
