  • 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

Mount Falakro is a high mountain, with dense forest coverage in the northern slopes, while scrubland and phrygana cover most of the southern part. Conifer, mixed and broad-leaved woodland can be found in the forested area, while many cliffs are present.

4.2 Quality and importance

Mount Falakro still supports a very good Rock Partridge (Alectoris graeca) population, while is also very important for birds of prey like the Long-legged Buzzard (Buteo rufinus), the Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) and the Booted Eagle (Hieraaetus pennatus). The southern part of the SPA is ideal for species like the Roller (Coracias garrulus) and the Stone Curlew (Burhinus oedicnemus).
