  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes
  • NP: in case that a species is no longer present in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Type: p = permanent, r = reproducing, c = concentration, w = wintering (for plant and non-migratory species use permanent)
  • Unit: i = individuals, p = pairs or other units according to the Standard list of population units and codes in accordance with Article 12 and 17 reporting (see reference portal)
  • 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

A well wooded island, with great coverage of conifer, broad-leaved and mixed forest. Forest fires of earlier years (mainly 1985), have created large of little or no forest coverage, ideal for foraging birds of prey. The highest mountain of the island is included (Mt Ypsarion, 1.213 m.) as well as several adjacent rocky islets.

4.2 Quality and importance

Thasos island is one of the most important nesting sites, on a European Level, for the Shag (Phalacrocorax aristoteli) and the Lanner Falcon (Falco biarmicus). In the past, Griffon Vultures used to nest, but now they are only visitors to the area. With appropriate conservation measures, they could re-use the area for nesting.
