In the Reserve, along the various itineraries, there are observation huts. They are the ideal place from where you can observe the river without frightening the aquatic birds populating it. However, the river is not the only environment offering interesting aspects. It is very important to look also in other directions. For instance, towards the tree foliage where you can observe several bird species and their nests.
In the Nature Reserve, the bike rental service is available at the following accommodation structures:
In the Reserve you can above all observe birds
and among them, especially aquatic birds. There are both resident and
migratory birds: the latter live in the Reserve only during certain
periods of the year.
The observations can be easily carried out in September-October and from February to April. As a matter of fact, in these periods most of the aquatic birds stopping in the Reserve migrate towards the south and the north. The "Birdwatcher Calendar" illustrates the easiest species to observe and the best sighting periods.
The Cooperative "Le Mille e una notte" organizes guided visits to the Reserve for individuals or groups of tourists, families, and organized groups (by previous booking within Thursday). Visitors will have the opportunity to spend one day surrounded by nature, to walk observing resident and migratory birds from the observation huts, to stop in the picnic areas and cook at the barbecue sites, to visit the Museum of the Night and receive material on the Reserve. The guided visits will be organized according to the visitors' needs: we will also provide binoculars and didactic cards to better appreciate the biological diversity of the Reserve.
