Site description
Part of a larger wet deciduous forest area along the Ziemelsusaja river, comprising also some flood-plain meadows and a large open raised bog. Listed as an IBA since 1994 [3, 4, 1]. Almost fully protected: there is a 98.6% overlap with Abeli restricted nature reserve, a candidate SPA. The gap between IBA and pSPA boundaries is mostly due to differences in methods in boundary setting.
