In August 2000, a bush fire burnt most of the vegetation in the Restonica valley (Corsica, Western Mediterranean) including ca. 730 ha of Scots and Corsican pines forests. The valley is part of the Natura 2000 network (ref: FR9400578). By comparing data collected during field surveys (1992 and 2001 -2002) it was found that 6 out of 12 territories of the Corsican Nuthatch, an endemic species to the island, were lost from the study following the fire.
