  • 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

La ZPS correspond à un vaste espace de garrigue encore relativement peu aménagé, à l'ouest de l'agglomération montpelliéraine. Elle se caractérise par une activité pastorale en régression et des incendies de moins en moins fréquents, permettant à la forêt de chêne vert de gagner du terrain, au détriment des espaces ouverts. Situé au carrefour de 3 bassins de vie (agglomération montpelliéraine, vallée de l'Hérault et bassin de Thau), le site fait l'objet d'une fréquentation croissante et un développement des activités de pleine nature. L'augmentation de la population aux abords du site se traduit par une pression d'urbanisation croissante. A noter que les infrastuctures de production et de transport d'énergie sont bien présentes avec un parc éolien important (31 éoliennes à l'heure actuelle) et des projets photovoltaïques en augmentation.

4.2 Quality and importance

La Zone de Protection Spéciale abrite un couple nicheur d'Aigles de Bonelli. Ce site est aussi important pour l'aigle royal, comme zone d'alimentation des individus erratiques et d'un couple nicheur à proximité. Parmi les 29 autres espèces de l'annexe 1 de la Directive Oiseaux que l'on rencontre sur ce territoire, le bruant ortolan, le pipit rousseline, la fauvette pitchou, le busard cendré et le circaète Jean-le-Blanc ont des effectifs significatifs.
