Brief_description
A selection of small dams next to the N2 approximately 7km east of Riviersonderend. The larger of the dams receives dairy effluent and this results in waterbirds assembling in the area. Cattle feed is available in the surrounding fields, especially during winter, and this contributes to the congregation of waterbirds.
