  • Group: A = Amphibians, B = Birds, F = Fish, I = Invertebrates, M = Mammals, P = Plants, R = Reptiles
  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes
  • 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

Ce site alterne les dunes humides, les dunes blanches, les dunes grises, les dunes arborées, les dunes boisées. Ce site est composé de la forêt domaniale de la Côte d'Opale classée en Réserve Biologique Domaniale (RBD), de la forêt communale de Merlimont, de terrains du Conservatoire du Littoral et de terrains communaux. De part la gestion de la RBD et la gestion des terrains du Conservatoire du Littoral assurée par le Syndicat Mixte Eden 62, ce site assure déjà une quiétude non négligeable à l'avifaune. Une partie du site a tendance aujourd'hui à s'embrousailler, la désignation en ZPS devrait aider à promouvoir de bonnes pratiques de gestion différenciées sur l'ensemble du site.

4.2 Quality and importance

La future zone de protection spéciale alterne des dunes humides, des dunes blanches, des dunes grises, des dunes arborées, des dunes boisées qui permettent d'accueillir une grande diversité d'oiseaux. 80 espèces d'oiseaux se reproduisent sur le site (Bondrée apivore, râle des genêts, Engoulevent d'Europe, Pic noir), 44 espèces sont considérées comme hivernantes et 163 espèces migratrices ont été vues sur le site.
