IBA Justification

The site was identified as important in 2011 because it was regularly supporting significant populations of the species listed below, meeting ('triggering') IBA criteria.

Populations meeting IBA criteria ('trigger species'):
Species Current IUCN Red List Category Season Year(s) Population estimate at site IBA criteria met
Corncrake Crex crex LC breeding 1992-1999 270-290 breeding pairs C6
Northern Lapwing Vanellus vanellus NT breeding 1989-1996 360-470 breeding pairs B2
Eurasian Curlew Numenius arquata NT breeding 2002-2011 9-12 breeding pairs A1, C1
Eurasian Scops-owl Otus scops LC breeding 2000-2010 40-65 breeding pairs B2
Hen Harrier Circus cyaneus LC winter 2000-2010 30-50 individuals C6
Red-footed Falcon Falco vespertinus VU passage 2000-2010 100-200 individuals A1, C1, C6
Barred Warbler Curruca nisoria LC breeding 2004-2010 110-160 breeding pairs B3, C6

The current IUCN Red List category may differ from that which was valid at the time of IBA criteria assessment (2011).

Response (conservation actions taken for the trigger species and/or their habitats)
Protected-area designation Management planning Other conservation action Result
Whole area of site (>90%) covered by appropriate conservation designation A management plan exists but it is out of date or not comprehensive Substantive conservation measures are being implemented but these are not comprehensive and are limited by resources and capacity medium
