Other Site Characteristics

Présence régulière du grand cuivré des marais (Lycaena dispar) et occassionnelle du cuivré de la bistorte (Lycaena helle) De 1 à 2 couples de martin pêcheur sur l'Attert. Côté Grand Ducal, présence d'une importante colonie de vespertillon à oreilles échancrées à Colpach Bas, dont les territoires de chasse se trouvent pour partie côté Belge.

4.2 Quality and importance

le site reprend dans sa partie ardennaise la vallée du ruisseau de Nothomb avec un important ensemble de prairies alluviales enclavé dans un massif de hêtraies acidophiles ; le site correspond essentiellement au paysage bocager de la vallée de l'Attert, depuis sa source jusqu'à la frontière luxembourgeoise, avec une alternance de petits massifs forestiers correspondant à de la chênaie-charmaie et de prairies sur marne ; ce paysage bocager comprend des prairies maigres de fauche, quelques rares prairies du Molinion bien conservées, plusieurs mardelles et un important réseau de haies ; Le site abrite une population relictuelle de triton crêté ; l'intérêt ornithologique du site repose essentiellement sur la présence de populations reproductrices de pie-grièche écorcheur, de pic mar, pic noir, milan royal et de milan noir ; le marais de Grendel, situé de part et d'autre de la frontière avec le Grand Duché de Luxembourg, reprend des éléments de bas-marais alcalins ; au niveau de Guirsch, le site abrite une importante population reproductrice de vespertillon à oreilles échancrées dont seul le site de reproduction a été désigné ; le site de la mardelle de Thiaumont comprend une des dernières pelouses calcaires sur marne de Belgique, avec une population de gentiane ciliée.
