4. SITE DESCRIPTION

4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover
N0899.00
N231.00

Total Habitat Cover

100

Other Site Characteristics

Archipiélago formado por tres islas (Sisarga Grande, Malante y Sisarga Pequeña) de naturaleza rocosa y cubiertas mayoritariamente por matorral. Sisarga Grande destaca por su mayor tamaño y forma amesetada, así como por sus acantilados.

4.2 Quality and importance

Tramos de costa mixta (acantilada, rocosa baja y arenosa), básicamente expuesta y semiexpuesta. Incluye una gran diversidad de hábitats que abarcan desde zonas estuarinas y sedimentarias como las marismas de Baldaio y la ensenada de A Insua, medios insulares y acantilados como las islas Sisargas, cabo Vilán, y medio lacustre como la laguna costera de Traba. Los abruptos acantilados de las islas junto con Cabo Vilán, concentran a la práctica totalidad de las colonias de Gaviota Tridáctila (Rissa tridactyla) y Arao Común (Uria aalge) de España. La isla Sisarga Grande también alberga la principal colonia de Gaviota Sombría (Larus fuscus) de España. En las zonas acantiladas se encuentran especies singulares de gran interés botánico, entre las que se incluyen endemismos y otras especies características de estos medios como el helecho Asplenium marinum.
