2019 medium unfavourable medium
Was the whole site assessed? no Condition (state) assessed by habitat
Accuracy of information good

Threats to the site (pressure)
Threat level 1 Threat level 2 Timing Scope Severity Result
Human intrusions and disturbance recreational activities happening now some of area/population (10-49%) slow but significant deterioration medium
Human intrusions and disturbance work and other activities likely in long term (beyond 4 years) some of area/population (10-49%) moderate to rapid deterioration medium

Condition of the site (state), by habitat
Habitat Habitat detail Reference area (ha) Actual area (ha) Habitat quantity (% remaining) Habitat quality (carrying capacity) Result
Grassland Low, seasonally wet grassland 0 0 moderate (70-90%) moderate (70-90%) unfavourable
Marine Coastal/Supratidal 0 0 moderate (70-90%) moderate (70-90%) unfavourable

Conservation actions taken at the site (response)
Protected-area designation Management planning Other conservation action Result
Most of site (50-90%) covered (including the most critical parts for important bird species) A management plan exists but it is out of date or not comprehensive Substantive conservation measures are being implemented but these are not comprehensive and are limited by resources and capacity medium
