  • 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

The site belongs to the geomorphological unit Košická kotlina basin, subunits Košická rovina plane and Toryská pahorkatina upland and to the unit Bodvianska pahorkatina upland, subunit Abovská pahorkatina upland. Northern part of the site is formed of huge alluvial cones built of quarternary fluvial and proluvial deposits. Southern part of the site represents Abovská pahorkatina upland built of the Neogene deposits (sandy gravels, clays and silts with sands and gravels) with erosion ravines, slope deformations and strongly dilated outwashed cones. Eastern part of the site represents Toryská pahorkatina upland with a dominant hilly relief built of the deposits with a pelitic-detrital evolution. Redeposited rhyolite tuffs and tuffites are parts of the layers. The site switches from middle-broken highland through alluvial plane to slight-broken lowland with the terraced deposits covered with loess and loam. Despite being strongly affected by human activities, the site consists of a habitats mosaic. Substantial part of the site is covered with an arable land. Forest stands are represented with residuals of oak-hornbeam, thermophilous submediterranean oak and tormentil oak forests and oak-elm-ash and ash-alder alluvial forests. Forest monocultures occur in places. Non-forest vegetation is represented with the lowland and submountain hay-meadows, mesophile pastures, tall-herb communities of wet meadows and reed beds. Substantial part of meadows and pastures has been intensificated. Except the alluvial forests residuals the water streams are accompanied with herbal fringe vegetation. Water habitats (i.e. water reservoirs) are represented with floating and submerged vegetation of meso- and eutrophic lakes and the willow shrubs. Xerophile habitats, especially shrubs, orchards, gardens, graveyards, roads, railways, etc. are important features of an intensively utilized agricultural land. Percentage within biogeographic regions: Pannonic 88.33%, Alpine 11.67%

4.2 Quality and importance

Site is one of the three most important areas in Slovakia for nesting of Falco cherrug and regularly nest here more than 1% of national population of Strix uralensis, Dendrocopos syriacus, Ciconia ciconia, Coturnix coturnix and Aquila heliaca.
