    The data gathered from the surveys was used to compare to the original biotopes recorded in 2001, and provide an assessment of the Reef Feature using advice from Regulation 33. The main notable differences were the loss off Mytilus biotopes from transects 2 and 4, and a expansion in Mytilus biotopes in transect 9. The first target set by Regulation 33, of no decrease in extent and diversity of rocky shore biotopes has been met, with Flamborough Head still notable for its range of rocky shore biotopes. The second target set is to ensure that the distribution of characteristic chalk cliff biotopes, does not significantly decrease from the original baseline survey but this could not be assessed.
