Brief_description
A farm dam; shoreline open, predominantly rocky, with no vegetation. During 1996 small numbers of 14 species were recorded, 11 species in summer and 7 in winter. The bulk of the summer total was made up of four waterfowl species: Egyptian Goose, South African Shelduck, Yellowbilled Duck and Spurwinged Goose. The dam was dry in the winter, when the count was low and the commonest species was Cape Wagtail; 9 Avocet and 7 Egyptian Goose were also recorded. A mild threat is livestock grazing and trampling. No birds were recorded during 1997 as the dam was dry.
