  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • 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); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

Other Site Characteristics

Es el segundo marjal más extenso de Castelló, contando con abundante agua de muy buena calidad. Alberga más del 2% del hábitat de turberas de carrizos básicos, así como una gran diversidad de hábitats propios de humedales. Muy importante para aves acuáticas.

4.2 Quality and importance

Nidifican once especies de aves acuáticas del Anexo I. Destaca el avetorillo común, cuyo promedio representa el 11 % de la población censada en la Comunitat Valenciana, así como la nidificación de focha moruna. COlonias destacadas de canastera común y fumarel blanco. Presencia invernal de especies amenazadas como el porrón pardo (33 % de los efectivos de la Comunitat Valenciana) y focha moruna. Los rangos de las poblaciones de aves reflejadas en el apartado 3.2 muestran los contingentes mínimos y máximos registrados en el periodo 2003-2008, elaborados a partir de censos oficiales.
