Birdwatching in Italy, Ventotene Island Tour

Ventotene Island Birding in Italy Tour

This is a 3-day Birdwatching in Italy tour in Ventotene Island is a very relaxed-paced trip on request where you can expect to see between 80 up to 100 species of bird depending on the time of the year.  This birding tour in Italy will take you to one of the most important sites for migratory birds in the country!

Thanks to its geographical position, in fact, it represents the first stop for many species that seasonally make huge travels between the African continent and Europe (and the other way around), and that “invade” with very high numbers the island... making this a great spot for birding and wildlife photography!

In spring Ventotene Island with its cultivated fields and its typical plants of the Mediterranean environment welcomes the so-called “short-range migrants”, all those species that spend the winter months around the Mediterranean Basin and that go as far as possible on the coasts of North Africa and the “long-range migrants”, those who spend the winter south of the Sahara. In this season the island is literally invaded by birds of all kinds, offering excellent opportunities for wildlife and birding photography in Italy.

Autumn, however, is considered by many birding fanatics to be the season of rarities. The island, in fact, in addition to being mainly affected by the presence of short-range migrants, is affected by the arrival of less frequent species for our country, often due to the random movement of young and “inexperienced” migratory birds.

With its volcanic origin, the mineral-rich soils of the island offer products with a unique flavour also for its human inhabitants. After a period of departure from the countryside, we are witnessing a gradual return to agriculture: in addition to those who have always cultivated the numerous gardens on the island, there have been those who have taken up ancient crops such as that of Lentils, those who have restored ancient vineyards and those who have combined old traditions with the most recent and innovative techniques, introducing synergic cultivations and permaculture.

The life of the fields and the relationship with the migratory birds has always been strongly rooted in the life of every islander. Over time, the hunt and capture of small passerines have been replaced by research projects, monitoring and interest by researchers and birders, exciting the local community itself.

Join us for a Birdwatching in Italy weekend to discover the migration and the rural traditions of the island, in support of small agricultural realities, to get to know Ventotene in a period far from summer overcrowding!
