  • Group: A = Amphibians, B = Birds, F = Fish, I = Invertebrates, M = Mammals, P = Plants, R = Reptiles
  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes
  • NP: in case that a species is no longer present in the site enter: x (optional)
  • 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

Extremely diverse habitats are characteristic of this largest wetland complex in Lithuania, however plant communities typical of reed marshes and flooded meadows prevail there. The site comprises a complex of wetlands including 4 large raised-bogs, shalow bays of Curonian Lagoon and eutrophic Lake Kroku Lankos, 2 large complexes of fish-ponds, numerous canals and streams intersected the delta, and a vast area of wet seasonally flooded meadows and fens. Spring floods last form 57 to 62 days with water level rising by up to 2-3 metres. Up to the 25000 ha of the coastal meadows, pastures and forests are flooded in late winter and spring. Flood control is ensured by the means of a large polder and dam system. Sandy islands and littoral zone of the Curonian Lagoon are mostly overgrown with willow and reed. The derelict land covers large part of polders area.
