Perched salt marsh near Fishtown of Usan
Perched salt marsh near Fishtown of Usan
This photo shows an area of 'perched' salt marsh which is a very rare habitat along the coast of Angus. Such 'perched' salt marsh areas are found bordering the high water mark between Scurdie Ness and Rickle Craig and that is partly why this area is a designated SSSI. The fragmented mosaic of these salt marsh areas and their susceptibility to erosion, particularly at a time of rising sea levels, makes them vulnerable.
