Site description
An area of steppe divided by patches of forest.

Key biodiversity
Only a very short survey was carried out in 1996 (several days) and more research is needed. The IBA contains a high diversity of breeding raptors (4--8 pairs in a rather small area) and, although current data is only near criteria thresholds, it is undoubtedly of real importance, especially considering its small size.
