The site was identified as important in 2006 because it was regularly supporting significant populations of the species listed below, meeting ('triggering') IBA criteria.

Populations meeting IBA criteria ('trigger species'):
Species Current IUCN Red List Category Season Year(s) Population estimate at site IBA criteria met
Greylag Goose Anser anser LC winter 2006-2008 270-6,006 adults A4i
Mallard Anas platyrhynchos LC winter 2003-2006 15,163-25,830 adults A4i
