Four sites on the Berwickshire and North Northumberland European Marine Site were surveyed in order to assess the condition of intertidal sand and mud flats and establish a baseline for characterisation and future monitoring of the large shallow inlets and bays feature of the site. Embleton Bay and Beadnell Bay are moderately exposed bays on the open coast whilst Budle Bay and Fenham Flats are more sheltered with finer sediment.
