Other Site Characteristics

Kõrgessaare-Mudaste loodusala (kattub osaliselt Kõrgessaare-Mudaste linnualaga) asub Hiiumaal. Ala pindala on ca 2900 ha. Ligi 38% loodusalast jääb maismaale, ülejäänud osa moodustavad vee-elupaigad. Alal on madalad, osaliselt roostunud lahed ja esinduslikud rannikujärved. Armioja on esinduslik loodusliku ilmega veekogu koos loodusilmelise kaldapuistuga. Alal on maastikuline väärtus ning siin on palju kaitstavaid ja ohustatud taimeliike. Väga suur osa poollooduslikest kooslustest on regulaarselt majandatavad.

4.2 Quality and importance

Kõrgessaare-Mudaste loodusalal esinevad elupaigad on rannikulõukad (*1150), laiad madalad lahed (1160), väikesaared ning laiud (1620), rannaniidud (*1630), kadastikud (5130), lood (alvarid – *6280), niiskuslembesed kõrgrohustud (6430), liigirikkad madalsood (7230) ja puiskarjamaad (9070). Elupaikade esinduslikkus on üldjuhul arvestatav, kuid mitmete niiduelupaikade esinduslikkus paraneb aktiivse regulaarse majandamisega. Loodusala elupaigad pakuvad sobilikke kasvukohti kaunis kuldkingale (Cypripedium calceolus). Lisaks kaitstakse loodusalal saarmast (Lutra lutra).
