Ornithological information An important breeding site for herons (Ardeidae) and other waterbirds, and a feeding area for raptors. Breeding species of global conservation concern that do not meet IBA criteria: Haliaeetus albicilla, Crex crex (no data).
Site description A system of fish-ponds and adjacent marshes in the valley of the River Koppány, 10 km to the south-east of the town of Tamási. The fish-ponds are overgrown with beds of Phragmites and Typha, whilst the adjacent marshlands are dominated by sedge Carex. Human activities include cattle-grazing and reed-harvesting (`Other' land-use, below).
