Other Site Characteristics

Site includes different types of forests, including balck alder swamps and pine dominated bog woodland, a small raised bog, agricultural land and moderately moist meadows.

4.2 Quality and importance

"Katlesi forest" (former name of the site) was added to the list of Internationally Important Bird Areas of Latvia in 1999. Soon after the site was chosen for one of the first Latvian LIFE projects "Protection and management of two Important Bird Areas of Latvia". Preliminary information about the site was rather scarce. With start of the LIFE project it became obvious that boundaries of the IBA should be revised. Inventory for the project was carried out not only within territory of IBA, but also further south to include mosaic landscape along the Russian border. As it was expected, new breeding territories for the Lesser Spotted Eagle Aquila pomarina were located, and density of this species proved to be higher that in former IBA. The site within current boundaries - nature park "Vecumi" - has perfect mosaic landscape for at least the Lesser Spotted Eagle. Stretching from north to south the site has continuous fragmented forest patches surrounded by suitable feeding habitats. Forests within the nature park still have good complex of natural habitats. Older stands, so called "forest key habitats" are represented all over the territory with larger concentrations in the very north and south. These places are of higher importance for the park. Nesting sites for the eagles and Black Stork, and feeding habitats for rare woodpeckers are situated here.Qualifying features are 9080* Fennoscandian deciduous swamp forests, 9010* Western taiga and 91D0* Bog woodland. Qualifying species are Cinna latifolia,Leucorrhinia pectoralis, Lycaena dispar, Ophiogomphus cecilia, Unio crassus, Lutra lutra.
