  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes
  • 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

A 48-km long stretch of the river Waal, close to SPA Gelderse Poort (NL9902004), xxx between Nijmegen and Waardenburg. The site consists of the flood-plain (used mainly for dairy farming) and clay pits, and is bounded by winter dykes.

4.2 Quality and importance

The following data refer to the period 1993-1997 (data in paragraph 3.2a-b refer te period 1999-2003). Species meeting the 1% threshold (non-breeding): Bewick`s Swan Cygnus bewickii (2%), White-fronted Goose Anser albifrons (3%), Greylag Goose Anser anser (1%), Eurasian Wigeon Anas [Mareca] penelope (1%). One of the five most important sites for (breeding): Corn Crake Crex crex. xxx The site regularly supports more than 20,000 wintering waterbirds: average peak number 62,066 (1991/92-1995/96). xxx There are various roosts of geese Anser, which come from surrounding feeding areas, but counts underestimate actual numbers.  xxx Site includes IBA050 (IBA2000).
