Other Site Characteristics

Site represents hills and depressions covered with coniferous and mixed forests and agricultural lands. Semi-natural grasslands are weakly represented in the site. A number of small lakes occur in depressions. There are scattered farmsteads in the site. One of the most picturesque landscapes in western Latvia. Attractive place for tourists. D - Red Data Book of Latvia

4.2 Quality and importance

Main qualifying features are 3150 Natural eutrophic lakes and 9010* Western taiga. Main qualifying species are mosaic landscape birds listed in the Annex I, also Vertigo geyerii. Medium important site for conservation of all the habitats mentioned in the Chapter 3.1. Site holds patches of rather old and rich forests, though undergrowth is destroyed (dug-up) by Wild boars in many spots. Hosts a number of nationally rare plant and invertebrate species. Lakes are good feeding places for nationally rare bat species. The area holds a good diversity of both forest and mosaic landscape bird species, and their habitats are relatively little disturbed by human activities, in good overall condition.
