Birdwatching in Italy: Discovering the Ancient Tuscia!
The area between the provinces of Rome and Viterbo holds environments of extraordinary value, both from a landscape and conservation point of view. It is here that during the year more than 100 bird species find refuge, using coastal wetlands, rural ecosystems and mountain massifs as a nesting, wintering or stopover site during migration.
Among the many species that we are going to observe, two prominent species closely related to anthropic constructions, the lesser kestrel (Falco naumanni), a falcon that nests inside the structure where we will spend the night, the B&B Naumanni, a place surrounded by nature from which you can take breathtaking shots, and the European roller (Coracias garrulus), one of the most colourful representatives of the European birdlife.
Accompanied by an ornithologist, we will explore the Mignone river valley, the coastal wetlands and the Tolfa mountains, three of the most interesting places in Lazio for birdwatching and nature photography, as well as visiting the picturesque scenery that makes ancient Tuscia a place of unquestionable charm.
