  • 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)

4.2 Quality and importance

ARTICLE 4.1 QUALIFICATION (2009/147/EC): During the breeding season the area regularly supports: Sterna albifrons 1.7% of the GB breeding population over 5 year peak mean (1993-1997) and Sterna paradisaea 2.92% of the GB population over 5 year peak mean (2010-2014). ARTICLE 4.2 QUALIFICATION (2009/147/EC): During the wintering season the area regularly supports Arenaria interpres (Western Palearctic - wintering) 2.6% of biogeographic population over 5 year peak mean (1992/3-1996/7). During the wintering season the area regularly supports Caldris maritima 1.6% of biogeographic population over 5 year peak mean (1992/3-1996/7).
