ITALY - PO DELTA
ITALY - PO DELTA
The Po Delta has been rated as the area with the highest biodiversity in Europe, ranking it as one of Europe’s greatest wetlands.
We journey at a time when the breeding birds will be at their nests and there are still migrants to be found passing north on their way to Arctic breeding grounds.
Our first days will be dedicated to the Apennine hills of Emilia, to admire Lesser Kestrel and Red-footed Falcon, and if we are lucky, Eurasian Honey Buzzard and Short-toed Eagle.
Then we move towards the coast to the huge expanses of reed beds, marshes and rich farmland, with amazing landscapes, where we can enjoy such species as European Bee-eater, Collared Pratincole, Pygmy Cormorant, Ferruginous Duck, Greater Flamingo, Bearded Reedling, Montagu’s Harrier, Golden Oriole, all nine species of the European breeding herons, hundreds of waterfowl and lots more!!
Two relaxing boat trips are a special feature of this itinerary, which should get us close to many of the waterbird specialities and be excellent for the photographer.
Add to this the delicious local food and wine so rightly famous worldwide and the historical villages and abbeys of the area, and you will have the perfect setting for an outstanding, unforgettable and extremely enjoyable birding holiday!
