Other Site Characteristics

The area, which is adjacent to Vouna Evrou, is a steep-sided valley, with rock faces that descends from Demir Tsal (Sarka) hills. It consists of oak forests and pastures. The new name of the area Potamos-Koilada Filiuri is Lissos river, which is very long and composed of many streams. It is now threatened by an irrational reforestation of Pines in open oak forest, by road construction and by development in general. Nevertheless, abundant relics of riparian forest exist along the river as well as scattered inside the different agricultural cultivations.

4.2 Quality and importance

The site is rich in birds of prey including Neophron percnopterus, Gyps fulvus, Circactus, Aquila pomarina, A. chrysaetos and possibly Hieraaetus pennatus. Moreover it is the most important feeding area for vultures. Additional breeding species include Ciconia nigra, Dendrocopos medius and Hippolais olivetorum. The river provides with freshwater the near-to-sea wetlands. The reference on Leuciscus cephalus is about the subspecies macedonicus.Equally important is the presence of 5 species of reptiles (Elaphe sauromates Testudo graeca, Emys orbicularis, Testudo graeca, Testudo hermanni) and 1 amphibian (Triturus karelinii) of Annex ΙΙ. They have also been recorded 8 reptile species and 2 amphibian species.
