Brief_description
A large dam with fringing reeds and sedges, and open shoreline. Herons and spoonbills nest in nearby eucalyptus trees and on islands. Numbers of most waterfowl species are higher in winter; this trend is enhanced by exceptional counts in winter 1995, especially of Blacknecked Grebe, Hadeda Ibis, Whitefaced Duck, Egyptian and Spurwinged Geese, Yellowbilled Duck and Red- billed Teal. Good numbers of Redknobbed Coot occur all year (nationally significant numbers in winter); Southern Pochard were numerous from winter 1995 to summer 1996; Greater Flamingos occurred from winter 1994 to winter 1995. Cormorant and Darter numbers peak in summer. 23 Great Crested Grebe in summer 1997; good summer counts of Glossy Ibis in 1995 and Cape Teal in 1995-96. Threats include disturbance from boating, water-skiing and angling.
