Brief_description
Sewage works near the Tugela River. Like the nearby Mandini Sewage Works, only two summer and three winter counts are available. These have recorded twice the number of bird species counted at Mandini during the same period, but numbers of most species were low. Purple Heron, Yellowbilled Stork, Fish Eagle, Black Crake, three species of tern and three species of kingfisher are recorded. High counts of African Jacana in summer 1995 and of Common Sandpiper in summer 1996. Whitefaced Duck counts are higher in winter. No threats have been identified.
