Other Site Characteristics

A small but significant wetland with extensive salt marshes and a small shallow lagoon with well developed dune system at the east side. Sandy heathland with Artemisia campestris and/or Spartium junceum is incorporated within the dune system. Reed bed formations, often dominated by one species (Scirpus maritimus, Phragmites australis, Typha latifolia), occupy artificial ditches and canals.

4.2 Quality and importance

Alyki Kitrous is considered to be a very important area for birds. A large number of protected and strictly protected species use the site (including the salt works) for breeding, feeding and resting. The largest in Greece population of Larus melanocephalus nests in small islets in the lagoon. Also, Alyki Kitrous supports a rare herpetofauna.In this site, Pancratium maritimum is growing wild; this plant species is seriously endangered by the human activities on the coast.
