Brief_description
Falls within the St Lucia system Ramsar site. Two seasonal freshwater pans on the Eastern Shores of Lake St Lucia. Only summer and winter counts for 1997 are available; twice as many waterbirds were recorded on the summer count, when numbers of Egyptian Goose and Yellowbilled Duck were particularly high. Numbers of Dabchick, Hadeda Ibis and Whitefaced Duck were relatively high in winter. The bird species diversity is probably typical of pans in this area. No threats have been identified.
