  • 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

Lake Karla was one of the most significant lakes of Greece in the past. In 1964, a year before its complete draining, more than 430000 waterfowl were counted, a record number. After many years of complete drainage, the area of the former lake has flooded partly, creating ideal habitats for many wetland species. Furthermore, there are few small reservoirs that were created after the drainage of Lake Karla. The surrounding area is arable land.

4.2 Quality and importance

The reformation of a part of Lake Karla has created a haven for many species. More specifically in the area, colonies of herons (Great White, Grey Heron, Little Egret, Night Heron and Squacco Heron) were found, as well as Glossy Ibis, Spoonbill, Black-winged Stilt (the largest concentration in Greece, more than 500 pairs), Oystercatchers, Collared Pratincole nests. In addition, Little Grebes, Great Crested Grebes and Black-necked Grebes also nest in significant numbers, along with Mallards, Ferruginous Ducks, Pintails, Gadwalls, Pochards and Shelducks. Other rare breeders include the Long-legged Buzzard, Purple Heron, Black Stork, Stone Curlew and Calandra Lark.
