  • 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)

Other Site Characteristics

This site is covered by extensive Pine woodland (P.halepensis and P.nigra), Greek Fir (Abies cephalonica) forest and mixed woodland and pastures. Total forest coverage reaches 80% due to the long term management and the fact that most of the area was not influenced by any forest fires for more than 80 years. The rest of the area is covered by scrub and cultivations. The southern slopes that end in the sea are very steep, creating many cliffs that provide excellent nesting sites for birds of prey. The eastern slopes are densely wooded. In the northeast there are abandoned magnesite quarries that have now been flooded with freshwater and there's interesting flora and fauna in them (amphibians and fish).

4.2 Quality and importance

This site is very important for the Cretzchmar's Bunting, hosting more than 90 pairs in the southeastern part. It is also important for birds of prey like the the Bonelli's Eagle (Hieraaetus fasciatus), the Honey Buzzard (Pernis apivorus), the Short-toed Eagle (Circaetus gallicus), and the Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus), as well as for more common species such as the Buzzard (Buteo buteo), the Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) and the Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus). Rock Partridges still survive in the area, restricted to higher altitudes, while the mixed and deciduous tracts sustain a great variety of forest birds.
