  • Type: p = permanent, r = reproducing, c = concentration, w = wintering (for plant and non-migratory species use permanent)
  • Unit: i = individuals, p = pairs or other units according to the Standard list of population units and codes in accordance with Article 12 and 17 reporting (see reference portal)
  • 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)

Other Site Characteristics

This is one of the forts that forms Kaunas Fortress complex, which was built in 1882-1945 in Kaunas city and its surroundings. During WWII fortresses were badly damaged, lost their value for war purposes and got abandoned. Currently the fort of Rokai is collapsing and in some places flooded with water.

4.2 Quality and importance

The biggest hibernating places of Barbastella barbastellus in Lithuania. What separates this hibernating place from others is the number of wintering bats species and number of individuals.
