A small freshwater marsh bordered by pine woodland, located in central Portugal, very close to the town of Coimbra, on a tributary of the Mondego river. An important part of a network of small wetlands in the Mondego valley, which includes two other IBAs: Paul do Taipal (009) and Paul de Arzila (010).
The reedbeds are important for two breeding waterbirds, and support large numbers of migratory passerines during autumn migration. Wintering duck numbers regularly exceed 2,000 birds.
