Site summary
This small but significant natural shallow brackish marsh is a precious remnant of what were historically far more extensive seasonal wetlands. The site attracts a wide range of waterbirds, notably breeding Black-winged Stilt and Spur-winged Lapwing as well as locally rare breeders like the Red-crested Pochard.
