  • Group: A = Amphibians, B = Birds, F = Fish, I = Invertebrates, M = Mammals, P = Plants, R = Reptiles
  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes
  • NP: in case that a species is no longer present in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Type: p = permanent, r = reproducing, c = concentration, w = wintering (for plant and non-migratory species use permanent)
  • Unit: i = individuals, p = pairs or other units according to the Standard list of population units and codes in accordance with Article 12 and 17 reporting (see reference portal)
  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

Other Site Characteristics

o Le site correspond aux zones humides de l'Eau Noire et de ses affluents entre Rièzes (Forge Jean-Petit) et Cul-des-Sarts. Il englobe des prairies de fauche, des milieux alluviaux (Forge Jean-Petit, vallée entre Rièzes et l'Escaillère, Marais de la Haute-Nimelette), établis souvent sur sols gleyifiés, une petite tourbière relique à Cul-des-Sarts mais aussi des portions de massifs forestiers mixtes (hêtraies mélangées à des pessières des Bois des Hauts Marais et de Gonrieux).

4.2 Quality and importance

o La vallée de l'Eau Noire et celles de ses affluents forment un complexe exceptionnel occupé par des végétations hygrophiles variées et de qualité ;o Les prairies de fauche servent de zone d'alimentation pour la Cigogne noire et hébergent la nidification de la Pie-Grièche écorcheur ;o Présence du Martin-pêcheur, nicheur au bord des cours d'eau ;o Dernier site de reproduction du Traquet tarier en Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse ;o Dans les boisements de grand intérêt se rencontrent notamment la Bondrée apivore et le Pic noir.
