Other Site Characteristics

Located at the southermost tip of Cyclades, this site includes the marine area surrounding the islet Makra and the eastern part of islet Pacheia, south of Anafi island. The islets are characterised by rugged rocky coastline and phrygana vegetation, with vertical cliffs and multiple locations with fallen boulders and scree, ideal for nesting seabirds. The wters between Anafi and its islets are relatively shallow, while to the south of these islets, the seabed falls abruptly to depths reaching up to 600m. Strong westerly currents predominate in the area. Mediterranean Monk Seal have been recorded in the sea.This site includes the eastern part of the island of Anafi along with a group of three small islets (Ftena, Pachia and Makra) situated south of Anafi island, at the south-east part of the Cyclades islands.

4.2 Quality and importance

This site is important for the Eleonora's Falcon (Falco eleonorae) with a total breeding population of 290 pairs. It is also important for the Shag (Phalacrocorax aristotelis, 20-30 pairs), the Bonelli's Eagle (Hieraaetus fasciatus, at least 1 pair), and the Audouin's Gull (Larus audouinii, 10 pairs). The exact numbers of breeding Cory's (Calonectris diomedea) and Yelkoun (Puffinus yelkouan) shearwaters are not known yet, it looks however that this site is also important for both species. The site holds an important colony of Cory's Shearwater, the largest on the Cyclades and the fifth overall Greece. The species finds here suitable nesting habitats with numerous crevices and soft substrate. Hundreds of birds can be seen during the summer months foraging and rafting particularly in the marine area between Anafi Island and its neighbouring islets to the south, aswell as between Anafi and Santorini islands.Further surveys are required to delineate Cory's Shearwater foraging areas around Anafi.
