2014 updates. This area was once a true marsh habitat which harbored a considerable diversity of birds including threatened and endemic species as well as quite large numbers of wintering waterfowl, waders and raptors. This site contains the last remnants of the historical Hor Ibn-Najm but this historic marsh has sadly been slowly eradicated as more and more of the area has been used for agriculture and human habitation.
