Other Site Characteristics

A group of islands west of the island of Chios, covered with maquis and phrygana and few trees.The site is located in the region of Psara and Antipsara islands in the Northern Aegean Sea. The site includes the Antipsara island and a group of small islands such as, nisides daskalio, mastrogiorgi, prasonisi, kato nisi, mesiako, koutsoulia etc. It consists of a 2.7 n.m. marine extension around Antipsara, including coastal marine areas along the western coast of Psara, from Cape Pounta Roussos in the northwestern point down to Cape Timios Stauros at the western tip of the island. The marine extension in the southern reduses to 1.5 n.m. south and southeast from the small island kato nisi. The marine area engulfs 14 uninhabited islets surrounding Antipsara and western Psara. The islands are dry, with minimal tree cover and mainly covered by phrygana. The coastline is characterised by steep coastal cliffs and rocky shores which are particularly important nesting and resting sites for seabirds and colonial raptors. There are degraded sand dune systems and sandy beaches on the southern coast of Antipsara. Apart from seabirds, the Mediterranean Monk Seal has been recorded in the marine area of Psara.

4.2 Quality and importance

This site is important for breeding seabirds and breeding and passage raptors.This site is important for breeding seabirds and breeding and passage raptors. Species of concern include: Calonectris diomedea, Puffinus yelkouan, Phalacrocorax aristotelis and Falco eleonorae. The area hosts one of the largest Puffinus yelkouan colonies in the Northern Aegean. The birds use waters adjacent to the colony for rafting and feeding. Large numbers of rafting birds have been recorded gathering within the marine area during the evening, while foraging flocks are smaller.
