Brief_description
A large dam on the Morotele River in Borakalalo Nature Reserve. Has fringing reedbeds; when water level is low there is shoreline habitat for waders. Holds an excellent variety of waterbirds, including globally significant numbers of Great Crested Grebe in winter. Large numbers of Yellowbilled Stork occur in summer, and good numbers of cormorants occur, especially in winter (Whitebreasted breeds). Grebes, Darter, Sacred Ibis, waterfowl, Redknobbed Coot, and Threebanded, Blacksmith and Wattled Plovers are commoner in winter. Summer counts have increased during the survey period. Pollution and siltation are mild threats.
