Other Site Characteristics

The site consists of 3 major parts: Lake Pape, Nida bog and large marine area. Large Phragmites australis, Scirpus spp., Typha spp. and Cladium mariscus stands characterize the Lake Pape area. Grasslands and fens surround the lake. Different management activities are going on in the area like reed cutting, grassland management (a number of wild horses (Konik Polski) has been introduced there), etc. Nida raised bog is a representative of the 'western type' located at the very coast of the Baltic Sea. One of the largest fen areas in Latvia is located in the NE of the site. Myrica gale stands characterize the N part of the fen. Coniferous and mixed forests are located mainly in the N and NE part. Nida bog together with Pape Lake is included in the list of Latvian Ramsar sites. The third part - coastal and offshore waters are important wintering sites for waterfowl. D - Red Data Book species

4.2 Quality and importance

Lake Pape in an important site for conservation of lakes with Chara spp. formations (3140) and Calcareous fens with Cladium mariscus and species of the Caricion davalianae (7210*). Important qualifying features within the site are Embryoinic shifting dunes (2110), Shifting dunes along the shoreline with Ammophila arenaria (2120), wooded dunes (2180), grey dunes (2130), Molinia caerulea meadows (6410), and transitional mires (7140). Pape Lake hosts one of the largest Cladium mariscus localities in Latvia. The lake is important staging place for many migratory birds and it is very rich waterfowl breeding area. One of the best sites for breeding Botaurus stellaris in Latvia. Lake is important feeding place for many bat species, including Myotis dasycneme. Site hosts significant number of nationally rare and protected plant and animal species. Important site for Linaria loeselii. Nida bog is important mainly for different mire habitats (e.g. 7110*, 7140). As it has been influenced by drainage and peat extraction, the largest part of the mire is not in excellent conservation status any more. Important for conservation of breeding and staging bog birds; one of the few breeding sites for Numenius phaeopus in Latvia.
