Furthermore, there are in the area many temporary lagoons scattered among the steppes that are wet through the year. They represent basic breeding grounds for the endangered White-headed Duck. Greater Flamingo, Whiskered Tern and Black-necked Grebe have been breeding continuously in the area during the last years. Many other wildfowl and waders can also be found in the lagoons such as the Ferruginous Duck which use the area during migration and winter.
