An area of salt-pans (with fresh water in winter and spring; saline in summer and autumn), largely without vegetation, bordered by agricultural land. Human activities include salt-extraction. The site lies close to Lake Sasko (site 039) and is a transboundary IBA with `Velipoja' in Albania (site AL013).
The site is important for breeding and feeding waders, several of which are species of European conservation concern. In summer 1988, 15,000 waders (Charadrii) were counted.
