  • 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

Le site est caractérisé au centre par la vallée de la Truyère, d'orientation nord-est / sud-ouest, où alternent des terrains métamorphiques et sédimentaires. En rive gauche comme en rive droite, le site intègre des plateaux, constitués de sols d'origine volcanique. Le maintien du bocage constitue un enjeu à moyen terme pour ce site. Le développement des activités touristiques représente une seconde problématique qui mérite une attention particulière.

4.2 Quality and importance

Douze espèces de l'annexe 1 se reproduisent régulièrement sur le site, parmi lesquelles 8 espèces de rapaces. Le site accueille notamment des rapaces forestiers tels que l'Aigle botté, le Circaète Jean le Blanc ou le Milan royal, dont les populations sont très probablement sous-estimées dans l'état actuel des connaissances. Le site constitue en outre une voie de migration importante. Il s'agit probablement du troisième site français pour la migration post-nuptiale du Milan royal. Les boisements de feuillus et les milieux rupestres situés dans les gorges offrent des lieux de reproduction pour la plupart des espèces de l'annexe 1. Les plateaux où alternent culture et prairies bénéficient d'un maillage bocager encore relativement dense et favorable à l'alimentation de la plupart des espèces de rapaces.
