Brief_description
An open, ephemeral pan with little vegetation; adjacent to Strydenburg town. Good wader and flamingo habitat; Greater Flamingo has bred here. One winter count, in 1997, produced a substantial number of waterbirds of 18 species, the largest totals being of Greater and Lesser Flamingo, and Redknobbed Coot, with good numbers of South African Shelduck, Cape Teal, Blacksmith Plover, Avocet and Blackwinged Stilt; even 24 Curlew Sandpipers and a Ruff were present. Mild threats are posed by human disturbance and domestic dogs and cats.
