Description of site: A water-storage reservoir on the coastal plain of Tamil Nadu, north of the Kaveri river, about 16 km south-southwest of the much larger Kaliveli Tank (site 121). The tank, bunded along its western shore, is fed by local run-off and an intermittent river, and has an average depth of one metre when fully flooded. It dries out completely during the dry season Climatic conditions: Tropical monsoon climate, with an average annual rainfall of 1200 mm. Mean temperatures range from 28°C in winter to 39'C in summer

Principal vegetation: No information

Land use: Fishing, grazing of domestic livestock, and harvesting of grasses and reeds for thatching Possible changes inland use and proposed development projects: It has been suggested that Ousteri Tank be developed as a holiday resort with hotels and sporting facilities to cater to the inhabitants of Pondicherry

Disturbances and threats: Excessive grazing of aquatic vegetation and some illegal hunting of waterfowl

Economic and social values: No information

Fauna: An important wintering area for migratory waterfowl, Ousteri Tank is much more suitable for diving ducks than the nearby Kaliveli Tank. Peak counts in the winters of 1986-87 and 1987-88 included 13,500 dabbling ducks (mainly Anas querquedula. A. penelope, A. acute, and A. clypeata) and, 100 Phalacrocorax spp. 930 Egretta spp. 110 Ardea cinerea 150 Anastomus okitans 320 Ciconia ciconia 160 Threskiornis melanocephalus 74 Plegadis falcinellus600 Aythya ferina 800 A. fuligula 100 Fulica atra 250 Himantopus himantopus 100 other shorebirds Ousteri Tank benefits from its proximity to Kaliveli Tank, and when the latter dries out, some species such as egrets, storks, and ibises, move to Ousteri
