Brief_description
A farm dam surrounded by grassland and maize cultivation. Only one count, in Feb. 1992, when the dam was 70% full and yielded good numbers of Dabchick, Yellowbilled Duck, Redknobbed Coot and Blacksmith Plover, with small numbers of other waterbirds and Palaearctic shorebirds. May hold 600+ Redknobbed Coot. When water is low, extensive shallowly sloping beaches provide good habitat for shorebirds (W.R. Tarboton). Used for irrigation, but no threats have been identified.
