A small pan, probably ephemeral and with emergent grass/sedges; surrounded by several smaller pans. Counts were made in February 1992 and from winter 1996 to winter 1997. In February 1992 there were good numbers of Purple Gallinule, and also 80 Cattle Egret, 3 Purple Heron, 10 Glossy Ibis and 3 Hottentot Teal: the teal is infrequently recorded in counts from pans in this region. Good numbers of Spurwinged Goose and Redknobbed Coot occurred in summer 1997; numbers of Dabchick and Southern Pochard have peaked in winter. No threats have been identified.
