1. The revised Consultation lists the haul-out sites by area and gives between 66% and 100% of the common seal population added protection in Shetland, Orkney, Western Isles, Moray Firth and East Coast where numbers are declining. The 55% of overall Scottish population coverage refers to grey seals which are not suffering from worrying population decline.

2. A letter has been sent to Forth Ports PLC to explain that SACs already carry a higher level of protection than the proposed haul-out sites.
