  • 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)

3.2 Species referred to in Article 4 of Directive 2009/147/EC and listed in Annex II of Directive 92/43/EEC and site evaluation for them

  • 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

Other Site Characteristics

Réseau de carrières souterraines anciennes ouvertes dans du calcaire crayeux de l'Oxfordien supérieur. Site disposé en arc de cercle au Sud-Ouest et au Sud-Est de la commune de Bourges. Galerie principale d'accès en cours d'effondrement. Accès avec pratique de feux.

4.2 Quality and importance

Cet ensemble de carrières, par son intérêt biologique concernant les Chiroptères, dépasse largement le cadre régional. Il s'inscrit comme l'un des plus importants sites du Nord de l'Europe pour l'hibernation des chauves-souris. Dix espèces sont présentes sur les 29 recensées en France et certains de ces rassemblements sont les plus importants à l'échelle européenne. Spécificité du site liée au Grand Murin (jusqu'à 3500 individus en hibernation). Le Grand Rhinolophe et le Murin à oreilles échancrées sont également très abondants. Les populations de Chiroptères sont en augmentation depuis vingt ans.
