  • 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

Området omfatter et stort lavvandet havområde med adskillige sandbanker og stenrev. Derudover indgår i området kystnære arealer langs Horsens Fjords nordkyst og på østsiden af halvøen Gyllingnæs med strandenge, -sumpe og -overdrev bl.a. omkring Søvind Bæk og udløbet af Åkær Å. Desuden findes et antal småøer med strandeng, marker og mindre skovpartier i området. De største er Vorsø, Alrø og Hjarnø, der er beliggende i fjorden, og Endelave, der ligger i havområdet øst for fjorden. Vorsø var før 1929 landbrugsland, men blev erhvervet med det formål, at lade naturen råde og skabe et fristed for dyr og planter. Den opgivne landbrugsjord er nu groet til med skov af Ask (Fraxinus excelsior), Elm (Ulmus spp.), Ær (Acer pseudoplatanus) og Bøg (Fagus sylvatica) og øen er blevet fugtigere, fordi drænene er opgivet. På Vorsø forekommer meget store kolonier af skarv (Phalacrocorax carbo), fiskehejre (Ardea cinerea) og råge (Corvus frugilegus). Der findes flere vildtreservater i området. De to største findes på Vorsø og i Lerdrup Bugt. Fire mindre reservater ligger på Svanegrund og Møl-legrund, Hov Røn og Søby Rev.

4.2 Quality and importance

Horsens Fjord og Endelave er af ornitologisk betydning på grund af stor ynglebestand af Skarver (Phalacrocorax carbo). Området har desuden store rastforekomster af Hjejle (Pluvialis apricaria), Ederfugl (Somateria molissima molissima), Bjergand (Aythya marila), Hvinand (Bucephala clangula) og Lille kobbersneppe (Limosa lapponica). Endvidere findes mindre bestande af de rastende rovfuglearter Havørn (Haliaetus albicilla), Fiskeørn (Pandion haliaetus) og Vandrefalken (Falco peregrinus).
