Brief_description
Open ponds; some relatively undisturbed unused ponds have small patches of flooded grass and small Typha and Phragmites beds interspersed with mud and open patches. Counted first in 1997, when good numbers of ducks and Blackwinged Stilt were found in winter, while in summer good counts of Moorhen and Blacksmith Plover were recorded, and an exceptionally good total of 54 Ethiopian Snipe. Holds possibly 10 pairs of Purple Gallinule, 5-10 pairs of Black Crake; otherwise not significant for rails. Listed threats include eutrophication, the accumulation of solid waste, and hunting and trapping of birds.
