  • 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

The site includes the largest part of Sithonia peninsula from Vourvourou to the southern edge. Most of the area is covered by Aleppo pine forests and Black pine at the central mountainous area. The lowlands at the southern part of the peninsula are covered by extensive scrubland and phrygana due to dry climate, successive fires and extensive grazing. Important features of the area are the inland interspersed rocks as well as the coastal rocky areas, which offer suitable breeding sites for raptors.

4.2 Quality and importance

It is an important area mainly for breeding raptors and migrating species as well as species of open arid and coastal areas. Priority species include: Phalacrocorax aristotelis, Hieraaetus pennatus, Hieraaetus fasciatus, Falco biarmicus, Motacilla flava and Emberiza hortulana. There was a pair of Golden eagles till middle 90s at the area.
