Other Site Characteristics

A group of small islands east and west of Lesvos in the north-east Aegean. Human activities include stock-raising, fishing and tourism.Τhe site consists a group of small islands east and west of Lesvos in the north-east Aegean. It also includes the marine area located in the Bays of Makris Gialos and Lagada on the northeastern coast of Lesvos island, adjacent to the Mytilini Strait. Its boundary includes the marine area surrounding the islets of Kydonas, Prasologos, Monopetra and the Tokmakia islet group consisting of 10 islets (Panagia, Barbalias, Mavri Plakouda, Aspronisos, Tsoukalas, Aspri Plakouda and smaller islets). The marine area contains a 1.5 n.m. marine extension from Cape Feros in the north, to Mistegna Bay in the south. Waters in the area are shallow, rarely exceeding the depth of 50 m. The islets are mainly low-lying, covered with scarce shrub vegetation, smooth coasts and small beaches, with the exception of Aspronisos and Aspri Plakouda islets which are characterised by steeper coastline. They provide necessary nesting, resting and roosting sites for seabirds. Human activities include stock-raising, fishing and tourism.

4.2 Quality and importance

This is an important area for breeding seabirds and other coastal species. Species of concern include: Larus audouinii.This is an important area for breeding seabirds and other coastal species. Species of concern include: Larus audouinii. It holds here a medium- sized breeding population. Colony sites interchange between two uninhabited islets in different years. Birds breeding in the area are considered to belong to the same breeding population which also uses islets in the widest area. Their foraging and resting areas are restricted to adjacent coastal marine waters.
