  • PF: for the habitat types that can have a non-priority as well as a priority form (6210, 7130, 9430) enter "X" in the column PF to indicate the priority form.
  • NP: in case that a habitat type no longer exists in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Cover: decimal values can be entered
  • Caves: for habitat types 8310, 8330 (caves) enter the number of caves if estimated surface is not available.
  • 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)

Other Site Characteristics

Important massif forestier au nord de Chimay, comprenant plusieurs vallons encaissés ; le site englobe l'Etang du Moulin au lieu-dit "Prés des Forges" à Rance, et plusieurs prairies humides et aulnaies alluviales de grand intérêt, notamment en bordure du Ruisseau de Montbliart.

4.2 Quality and importance

o Milieu forestier représentatif de la hêtraie de l'Asperulo-Fagetum et des chênaies pédonculées sur schistes, présentant de belles populations de Pics noirs et de Pics mars ; L'étang du Moulin constitue un site important pour la reproduction et l'hivernage des oiseaux aquatiques (Râle d'eau, passereaux paludicoles, grèbes...) et pour la reproduction des amphibiens ; il offre aussi des mégaphorbiaies bien conservées ; Beaux milieux forestiers alluviaux dans les vallons encaissés (notamment à Montbliart) ; Le Ruisseau de Montbliart, entre autre, accueille la nidification du Martin-pêcheur.
