  • 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

Espacio marino que rodea a las islas Gabeiras, situadas a unos 400 metros de la costa, en el área de la boca norte de la ría de Ferrol, y a las islas de Os Cabalos, localizadas al norte de la ZEPA. La profundidad máxima apenas supera los 50 m. Sus fondos son arenosos y rocosos. En la franja costera contigua existen tanto acantilados, como grandes playas de arena.

4.2 Quality and importance

Extensión marina de la colonia de cría del paíño europeo (Hydrobates pelagicus) más importante de Galicia, situada en las islas Gabeiras, y de varios núcleos reproductores de cormorán moñudo (Phalacrocorax aristotelis aristotelis). La zona es relevante, también, para una gran diversidad de aves marinas migratorias, entre las que destaca, por su importancia, la pardela balear (Puffinus mauretanicus).
