Other Site Characteristics

A well wooded island, with great coverage of conifer, broad-leaved and mixed forest. Forest fires of earlier years (mainly 1985), have created large of little or no forest coverage, ideal for foraging birds of prey. The highest mountain of the island is included (Mt Ypsarion, 1.213 m.) as well as several adjacent rocky islets.

4.2 Quality and importance

Thasos island is one of the most important nesting sites, on a European Level, for the Shag (Phalacrocorax aristoteli) and the Lanner Falcon (Falco biarmicus). In the past, Griffon Vultures used to nest, but now they are only visitors to the area. With appropriate conservation measures, they could re-use the area for nesting.
