IBA Criteria

Year of most recent IBA criteria assessment: 2010

Populations of IBA trigger species
Species Current IUCN Red List Category Season Year(s) of estimate Population estimate IBA Criteria Triggered
Ferruginous Duck Aythya nyroca NT breeding 2009 7-10 breeding pairs C6
Corncrake Crex crex LC breeding 2009 60-80 males C1
Common Little Bittern Ixobrychus minutus LC breeding 2004-2009 10-20 breeding pairs C6
Eurasian Eagle-owl Bubo bubo LC breeding 2009 13-15 breeding pairs C6

Note: This table presents the IBA criteria triggered and the species that triggered then at the time of assessment, the current IUCN Red List category may vary from that which was in place at that time.

Conservation actions taken at site (response)
Conservation Designation Management Planning Conservation Action Result
Most of site (50-90%) covered (including the most critical parts for important bird species) No management planning has taken place Substantive conservation measures are being implemented but these are not comprehensive and are limited by resources and capacity low
