  • 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)

4. SITE DESCRIPTION

Back to top

4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover

Total Habitat Cover

0

Other Site Characteristics

The artificial freshwater lake (reservoir), largely overgrown with emergent vegetation, with locally extensive reedbeds along the shores and within the water of the lake (Dominant vegetation of Phragmites australis). Lake Agras is water dependent from the Vegoritida lake and the Boras river. Consequently, it is strongly affected by their pollution and eutrophication. The water of the lake is used by the hydroelectric station of Public Electricity Enterprise (DEH) as an energy resource for the nearby villages. Free-floating vegetation is collected by a flood-gate.

4.2 Quality and importance

There are many feeding, nesting, breeding, wintering and refuge habitats for bird species. Specifically, there are important breeding habitats for one of the colonies of Chilidonias hybridus in Greece and probably Chilidonias niger (very rare breeder in Greece).
