  • 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 englobe un ensemble de algunes et d'étangs en communication avec la mer par le dernier grau naturel de la côte languedocienne. On observe des gradients de salinité en fonction des apports relatifs d'eau douce et d'eau salée. Ceci génère une diversité des milieux naturels qui a justifié par ailleurs la proposition de ce site au titre de la directive Habitats. Au regard des objectifs de conservation des habitats d'oiseaux, ce sont surtout les usages de l'eau, donc la gestion des niveaux et de la salinité qui constituent des facteurs déterminants. La pression urbaine et touristique sur le lido est l'autre facteur important de vulnérabilité du site. Des actions pédagogiques sont entreprises depuis plusieurs années pour sensibiliser les usagers des plages.

4.2 Quality and importance

La diversité des habitats d'oiseaux sur ce site est liée aux différents types de végétation générés par le gradient de salinité que l'on connaît dans les différents étangs : sansouires, marais salants, roselières, chaque type de milieu abrite son contingent d'espèces. La présence dans le site d'un lido encore relativement préservé contribue également à la richesse ornithologique du site.
