Other Site Characteristics

The site is important as a bio-corridor and a connection with the fauna in the Eastern Stara planina. Strongly affected by the neighbouring intensive agricultural activities. After the attached map, the site goes strictly along the river, including exclusively alluvium territories, and omitting the forest areas in neighbourhood. The banks of the river covered by bush and tree vegetation. Many areas along the river are sunflower fields. Moody river bed, high moody waters; big part of the riverbed has been corrected; good forestation on the riverside, forests of ash trees, elm-tress, oak and beech – floodplain forests; Ph. communis, Th. latifolia, Th. angustifolia i Sp. Ramosum along the river.

4.2 Quality and importance

High: suitable habitats, but with restricted size, for bats and terrestrial mammals. Medium quality, due to the high level of urbanization and cultivation. The presence of a river with almost continuous water regime is good for the amphibians and some hydrophil and hydrobiont reptiles. The site represents a bio-corridor, linking the Kamchiya Reservoir with the Black Sea coast.
