Brief_description
A shallow pan in dune slacks south of Ozabeni. Large fluctuations in water level; prone to dry out. Fringing grassland; little reed cover; some Nymphaea cover, resulting in the occurrence of African and Lesser Jacana. When flooded, the pan can hold large numbers of waterfowl, especially Spurwinged Goose (e.g. in winter 1992, when relatively high counts of several other species were also made). Noteworthy numbers of Redwinged Pratincole occurred in winter 1993. Pinkthroated Longclaw occurs. No threats have been identified.
