The diversity of seaweeds was great, with Laminaria digitata, Laminaria hyperborea, Himanthalia elongata and F. serratus covering dense mats of Audouinella sp(p) in sandy areas and encrusting calcareous algae in sand free areas. Other conspicuous algal species here were G. stellata, Chondrus crispus and `Corallina' sp(p). Furcellaria lumbricalis, Cystoclonium purpureum and Ahnfeltia plicata were more conspicuous in sandy areas. Amongst the algae on the sand covered rock at the bottom station were numerous sand grain tubes of the polychaete worm Pygospio elegans.

F. serratus, Mastocarpus stellatus and Laurencia pinnatifida shared equal dominance towards the base of the lower shore whilst the sand binding algae Audouinella sp(p) increased in abundance. Bunodactis verrucosa could be found at this level.

No barnacles were present. Patella aspera and P. vulgata were present. The sublittoral fringe community consisted of only Corallina sp. and Lithothamnion sp. together with some clumps of Gigartina stellata.

Enteromorpha sp. was abundant in the lower eulittoral; with Palmaria palmata and Porphyra sp.. Balanus balanoides was highly abundant, with Patella vulgata, P. aspersa, Nucella lapillus and Littorina neglecta.
