A 270-ha reed pan, over 95% of the basin covered with dense emergent Phragmites; has a peripheral ring of open water, submergent plants and mixed sedges, rushes and grasses. Only summer and winter 1992 counts are available: these show reasonable numbers of Moorhen, but give much smaller bird numbers than do 1980s counts by D.G. Allan; the reasons for this are unclear. The earlier counts include: 170 Dabchick, 144 Yellowbilled Duck and 750 Redknobbed Coot (Sep. 1985), 84 Moorhen and 232 Redknobbed Coot (Jan. 1986); 136 Moorhen and 101 Redknobbed Coot (Jan. 1987); all these species have bred here. Purple Heron, Whitebacked Duck, Squacco Heron and European Marsh Harrier were also recorded, and the reedbed has a swallow roost. This important site merits regular monitoring and counting. Large areas of shore- line are muddy and exposed through cattle trampling; no other threats have been identified.
