Brief_description
A seasonal pan in the moist coastal grassland between Sodwana Bay and Lake Bhangazi. Such pans on the coastal plain are typically in grassy depressions, with some fringing sedges and Typha, and some Nymphaea cover. Only small numbers of waterbirds are normally recorded. The great difference between winter and summer figures arises from an exceptional count of 175 birds in winter 1992, when the pan was presumably full; all subsequent counts are low: winter, 0-14 birds; summer, 1-9 birds. No threats have been identified.
