Other Site Characteristics

The two lakes of the site are connected to each other by a canal which is not functional nowadays. The related malfunctions to the canal, the rivulet embankments and the drainage works due to extensive cultivation, gradually drain off Koroneia (Langada) lake into Volvi Lake. The water level of the former has been reduced to 0,5 m. The latter, is also connected to the sea by Richeios river which passes through a gorge with precipices and rocks, surrounded by dense, high maquis of extraordinary composition and high plane trees along the river banks. The two lakes are characterised by dissimilar indexes of land uses, eutrophication and urbanization, with lake Langada (Koroneia) being more threatened. However, two large streams, i.e.Apollonia and Mellisourgos, flow into the lake Volvi and result in sedimentation. Locally extensive reed beds occur around the lakes and along the rivulet banks. Small linear and mosaic type wood areas are found within the site. Between the two lakes, the very old Platanus orientalis trees are found with important colonies of grey herons and the riparian forest of Apollonia, where a large number of animals, including birds, find refuge. The surrounding hilly and mountainous area, along with cultivated land, support good numbers of birds of prey (Lesser Spotted and Booted Eagle, Long-legged Buzzard, Lanner, etc) and other protected species such as the Black Stork, the Roller and the Calandra Lark.

4.2 Quality and importance

Many feeding, nesting, breeding, wintering and refuge habitats for bird species are located in, along and close to the lake waters and Rentina gorge. Rentina gorge consists an important habitat for birds of pray and flyway for migratory bird species. In addition, the site is important from the archaeological point of view, since there are historical monuments in the area.
