  • NP: in case that a habitat type no longer exists in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Cover: decimal values can be entered
  • Caves: for habitat types 8310, 8330 (caves) enter the number of caves if estimated surface is not available.
  • 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)

  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes

  • 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

Gran is isolated island in the Gulf of Bothnia situated 10 km from the coast. Due to the exposed position the island is heavily surged by the sea. The highest, north and northeastern parts of the island is rocky while the rest is built up of extended gravelfields beautifully formed in stormshorelines rising in steps from sea level demonstrating the fast upheaval of land.

4.2 Quality and importance

Gran is an isolated island in the Gulf of Bothnia. It is known for the rich and interesting bird life. The very large colonies of Cepphus grylle (more than 600 breeding pairs) and Alca torda (110 breeding pairs) is remarcable. Several other sea-birds and waders are breeding on the island as well. Gran is also known for the large colony of Grey Seal (Halichoerus grypus) who use to reside at the island. The forest on the island is an old and almost uninfluenced coniferous forest.On the eastern side of the island, at a rather well sheltered harbour, is and old fishing village.Gran is situated within a larger area of national interest to environmental care.
