Other Site Characteristics

There is an enbankment which follows the riverside of Ogosta.The river bottom is with more alluvium and the water is more euthrophic. It is due to influence of Montana reservoir and the neighbouring town. Deposited alluvium and euthrophic water are reason for growth of 3260 and 3270 which are habitat of European importance.

4.2 Quality and importance

Near the village of Kriva bara there is an old riverbed 5 kilometres long. It is transformed in euthrophic lake, which reedy with macrophytes. N 43 38`24`` E 023 43`01``. On the right riverbank of Ogosta there is an interesting upland which is a protected area "Daneva mogila" established by Order 413 from 10.05.1982 year, N 43 38`05 E 023 43`06``. It represents a beautifull landscape with a group of century old trees - Quercus robur. Near the outflow of Ogosta is situated "Blatoto" (3150). The last 4-5 kilometres from the course of the river are reedy with aquatic vegetation (3260) and there is a plenty of fish. On the slopes of the swamp in west direction from town of Orijhovo are Pannonic loess steppic grasslands * (3260) with variety of flora and fauna. Ogosta River is rich in ihtiofauna species. Found are about 23 species of which 4 are included in Annex 2 of the Habitats Directive.
