Other Site Characteristics

Embalses con alto nivel de colmatación e islas en el curso medio del río Tajo con hábitats palustres y formaciones riparias que albergan importantes colonias reproductoras de especies amenazadas de aves acuáticas, y cortados y barrancas de paredes de gran verticalidad en las terrazas fluviales del río Tajo.

4.2 Quality and importance

Zonas de extraordinario interés para la avifauna acuática en el tramo medio del río Tajo (Embalse y barrancas de Castrejón, islas de Malpica de Tajo y colas y cortados del Embalse de Azután), albergando importantes colonias de nidificación de Martinete, Garceta común o Garcilla bueyera, e importantes dormideros en época de invernada de Cormorán común. El alto nivel de colmatación de estos embalses permite la existencia de extensos hábitats palustres que proporcionan un territorio óptimo para la nidificación e invernada de especies amenazadas como el Calamón, Aguilucho lagunero, Aguilucho pálido, Garza imperial, Garza real, Avetorillo y otras especies de interés, destacando la presencia del Avetoro. En las islas y riberas de los tramos del río Tajo incluidos, existen sotos fluviales bien conservados (saucedas, fresnedas, bosques galería de Alamo blanco, junqueras, tarayales,etc.) Finalmente, los cortados en las terrazas fluviales presentes en el Embalse de Castrejón y colas del Embalse de Azután constituyen un hábitat idóneo para la nidificación de rapaces rupícolas como el Aguila perdicera.
