Site summary
Yelkouan Shearwaters (Puffinus yelkouan), Scopoli's Shearwaters (Calonectris diomedea) and Audouin´s Gull (Larus audouinii) use this site during their breeding periods. Several non-seabird species also use this site for breeding or as a migratory stopover. Sufficient numbers of birds use this site so as to trigger both Global and European specific regional IBA criteria.

Work relating to seabird research received funding from the LIFE Programme of the European Union. The project is co-financed by the Government Office for Cooperation with NGOs and the Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund.
