Brief_description
An irrigation dam, with deep water, some fringing reeds and little floating vegetation. Counts are very low, with a maximum of 40 birds (winter 1995). Surrounding human activity poses a serious threat (squatter camps, rubbish dump, fishing); the site has not been counted since summer 1997 because of lack of security.
