  • 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)

Total Habitat Cover

0

Other Site Characteristics

The site comprises of two wetlands located on the northern part (cape Louros including lake Psalidi) and west part (salt-marsh Alyki Tigaki)) of the island of Kos. Lake Psalidi is actually a coastal salt-marsh, permanently flooded by salt or brachish water. It supports halophilous or semi-halophilous vegetation and permanently inundated reed-beds with Phragmites australis and Typha spp. (a habitat type not included in Annex I, CORINE 91 code 53.111). In the western part of the site there is Alyki, a small lagoon with a salt-pit, with halophytic vegatation, reedbeds, and Tamarix spp. Around it there are sand dunes and sand beaches.

4.2 Quality and importance

This is an important site for breeding and migrating waterbirds. Species of concern include Tadorna ferruginea and Numenius tenuirostris.
