  • 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)

4.2 Quality and importance

Tramo de costa expuesta que incluye a los siguientes enclaves: Marismas de Baldaio, Islas Sisargas, Ensenada de A Insua, Laguna de Traba, Cabo Vilán y Cabo Fisterra. Marismas de Baldaio y Ensenada de A Insua albergan interesantes poblaciones de aves acuáticas invernantes, aunque sin alcanzar cifras importantes. Los abruptos acantilados de Islas Sisargas y Cabo Vilán concentran a la práctica totalidad de las colonias de Gaviota Tridáctila (Rissa tridactyla) y Arao Común (Uria aalge) de España. Islas Sisargas también alberga la pricipal colonia de Gaviota Sombría (Larus fuscus) de España. Laguna de Traba, a pesar de su reducido tamaño, mantiene un muy buen estado de conservación al igual que el sistema dunar que tiene asociado.
