The Mouth of the River Platani: The First Staging Area for Birds Coming from Africa

The mouth of the river Platani is a place of great naturalistic beauty dominated by Capo Bianco cliff. It represents the first staging area for several migratory birds coming from Africa and, thanks to the diversification of the environments, it offers shelter to a luxuriant and variegated flora and, as a consequence, to a rich and heterogeneous avifauna. The reserve includes the final stretch of the river Platani (which, before flowing into the sea, forms a large bend) and the long sandy stretch of Borgo Monsignore, bordered by a bar of low dunes.
