Mudflats of mixed clay, silt and shingle border the Ore, Butley and Alde rivers and Havergate Island within a tidal range of up to 2 metres. In places this supports the rare intertidal flowering plant Zostera angustifolia. Narrow fringes of saltmarsh occur along the length of the rivers with wider expanses at Shingle Street, Havergate Island, Stony Ditch, the upper reaches of the Butley river and in places by the Alde river. These are mostly dominated by sea purslane Halimione portulacoides and sea lavender Limonium vulgare, but a wide range of other saltmarsh species also occur, including sea-heath Frankenia laevis, glasswort Salicornia pusilla, small cord-grass Spartina maritima and Borrer’s saltmarshgrass Puccinellia fasciculata. It is representative of the Halimione portulacoides community as described in the National Vegetation Classification. Saltmarsh elements also occur around the lagoons and borrowpits on Shingle Street, Havergate Island and the Kings and Lantern Marshes on Orfordness. These also contain the rare tasselpondweeds Ruppia spiralis and R.maritima.

Onus is on the AONB partnership / Conservation Boards (the adopters) to demonstrate this, remembering that uncertainty is considered to be a negative effect.
