An extensive area of reedbeds (Phragmites) and water-meadows (unique in Cyprus), adjacent to Akrotiri salt-lake.
A very important stop-over site during spring and autumn migration; also important for winter visitors. Bird data are averaged for 1990-1995, although many more species are recorded every year, ranging from raptors and large waterbirds to small warblers (Sylviidae) and finches (Fringillidae). Species of global conservation concern that do not meet IBA criteria: Crex crex, Gallinago media (both passage).
