  • 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

A dammed estuary, formerly part of the Waddenzee (closed off in 1969), which has become freshwater, though the estuary structure remains. The surrounding area is mainly open grassland and arable xxx land with scattered farms. The site consists of a large freshwater lake, former creeks, grasslands, marshlands and shrubs. It is adjacent to the mudflats and saltmarshes of the SPA Waddenzee (NL9801001)

4.2 Quality and importance

The following data refer to the period 1993-1997 (data in paragraph 3.2a-b refer te period 1999-2003). An important wetland for breeding marshland birds and for non-breeding Platalea leucorodia and a wide variety of waterbirds. xxx Species meeting the 1% threshold (non-breeding): Eurasian Spoonbill Platalea leucorodia (10,4%), Bewick`s Swan Cygnus bewickii (8,6%), Greylag Goose Anser anser (1,8%), Barnacle Goose Branta leucopsis (8,1%), Gadwall Anas strepera (4,6%), Common Teal Anas crecca (1,4%), Northern Pintail Anas acuta (5,6%), Northern Shoveler Anas clypeata (1,1%). xxx One of the five most important sites for (breeding): Western Marsh-Harrier Circus aeruginosus, Montagu's Harrier Circus pygargys, Ruff Philomachus pugnax; (non-breeding): Spoonbill Platalea leucorodia, Bewick's Swan Cygnus bewickii, Caspian Tern Sterna caspia. xxx Site largely overlaps with IBA 015 (IBA2000).
