4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover

Total Habitat Cover

0

Other Site Characteristics

The site is located in the soutwestern part of Peloponnisos. The western part of the bay is closed by the elongated island of Sfaktiria which has an orientation parallel to that of the opposite coast. This island is hilly, with a height of 106m, and has a calcareous substrate. A very characteristic vegetation of Juniperus phoenicea mixed with Euphorbia dendroides, Ruta chalepensis, Phlomis fruticosa and other phrygana species exists on this island. The entrance to the bay is at the southern edge of the site, and is partly, closed by the islet of Pylos, almost opposite the small town of the same name. To the north-west of the site, the coastal lagoon "Divari" of Pylos or of Gialova is situated. This is a shallow, brackish lake (with marshes), partly drying up in the summer. Around the lake, formations of mud- and sand-flats occur, mixed with salt marshes and salt forest of Tamarix species. Cliffs and rocky shores are present at the north of the lagoon, and give the appearance of being a continuation of the island of Sfaktiria. Well-developed sand-dunes occur between the lagoon and the sea-shore, and here healthy formations of Juniperus phoenicea and Platanus sp. grow..

4.2 Quality and importance

This is an important site for wintering and passage waterbirds. Species of concern include: Egretta garzetta, Egretta alba, Plegadis falcinellus, Glareola pratincola, Tringa stagnatilis, Tringa glareola and Gelochelidon nilotica.
