Birdwatching by boat in a small group in the Pialassa Baiona

Our bird watching tours are organized in a very ecological and “slow” way: it is in fact possible to participate only in small groups (from 2 to 6 people). During the itinerary we make some stops to observe the animals. The optical instruments available to participants allow you to capture moments of nature from a considerable distance, and then enjoy photographic shots. During the summer there are often large groups of flamingos (a few thousand), but also other very beautiful and fascinating species such as the shelduck, avocets, the knights of Italy, oystercatchers, terns. Doing this experience means discovering the fascinating natural and landscape heritage of Pialassa, and, together, retracing the evolution of the territory from Roman times to the present day, touching with your hand the intertwining of nature, history (with the drawing of Garibaldi and the Resistance) and the life of the inhabitants of the valley.

Itinerary

The excursion takes place on board a typical small lagoon boat and participants can observe the animal and plant species characteristic of this intertidal brackish lagoon. It is possible to birdwatch with binoculars and spotting scopes made available, and also to make excellent photos at a short distance from species such as Flamingos, Herons, Oystercatchers, Terns, Cormorants, Waders, etc. It will be possible to learn about the historical and geomorphological events typical of this unique environment in Italy and some interesting local Storytelling, with culinary uses of the herbs and fish / molluscs caught in the lagoon. All this can be accompanied by refreshments which in the hottest moments is very welcome. The guide is always available for questions, clarifications and curiosities. We will make a couple of stops along the banks and more spectacular places admiring the typical fishing huts.
