Other Site Characteristics

Ymittos is a long but narrow mountain (total length 20 km), with its highest peak reaching at 1026 m. An intense but short gorge separates the northern part of the mountain from the southern. The commonest rock of northern Ymittos is the schist, while limestones can also be found particularly at the southern and western parts of the mountain. This explains the lack of springs.

4.2 Quality and importance

This site is very important for breeding warbler and especially for the Ruppell's Warbler (Sylvia rueppelli). It is also very important for birds of prey like the Long-legged Buzzard (Buteo rufinus), the Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus), and the Short-toed Eagle (Circaetus gallicus). Other important species include the Cretzchmar's Bunting (Emberiza caesia), the Subalpine Warbler (Sylvia cantillans), the Eastern Orphean Warbler (Sylvia crassirostris) and the Black-eared Wheatear (Oenanthe hispanica), all of them breeding in scrub and phrygana.
