Living nature – fauna

National Natural Monument Landek is an important area mainly from the ethnomological and ornithological point of view. The rare Rove Beetles Siagonium quadricorne and Staphylinus compressus, Amara littorea and Harpalus tardus can be found here. The presence of highly endangered Cucujus cinnabeinus signifies good quality of core parts of forest vegetation having primordial character. Quite a few climbers nest in old trees with cavities. The endangered Middle Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos medius) belongs to the rarest species. Other highly endangered species include the Eurasian Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus), the Orioles Oriolus oriolus and the Stock Dove Columba oenas, the endangered Bluethroat Luscinia megarhynchos, the Pieds Muscicapa striata and the Common Raven Corvus corax. This area provides suitable conditions for bats. Five bat species were found here: the Common Noctule Nyctalus noctula, the Serotine Bat Eptesicus serotinus, the Pipistrellus Pipistrellus pipistrellus, the Soprano Pipistrelle Pipistrelus pygmaeus and the Greater Mouse-eared Bat Myotis myotis.
