The Po Delta now - Winter

Sighting

Parco Regionale Veneto del Delta del Po Manzolli  uggiosaSnow in winter in the Po Delta is an uncommon event, the temperature usually remains slightly above  zero. Much more usualare the foggy, humid days. The morningfrost on cold crystal sunny days is surely a picturesque aspect over this period in the Po Delta. The river banks, the flood plain and the poplar wood around the river become an incomparable environment.

Despite the cold climate, winter is a good period for sighting Po Delta Park birds. In the wetlands, in the channels;herons, egrets and grey herons. In the lagoon next to the sea; cormorants and ducks,mallards, coots, teals to name a few.But it is also the time for birds of prey such as hawks, buzzards and kestrels that areeasy to see  in the countryside completely unmovingin the air during their flight in the typical posture of the “holy spirit”. On good days, my advice is toput on a parka, pick up a pair of binoculars and a camera, and go to the lagoons and the valleys of “Boccasette”, “Ca’ Venier” and in” the Loop of Scardovari”, and you'll definitely come across in interesting sight.

Experiencing the Delta

Vivere il DeltaThe Po Delta is a wonderful land, most of which is still unknown. It should be experienced by walking slowly across it, discovering the gentleness of its landscape, the warm and rough welcome of the fishing lodges, the emotion of the boat bridges, the mystery of the thick canebrakes, the wide horizons, the activity in the fishing lagoons and in the vegetable gardens, the charm of the mouth and of the sandbars, strips of very thin sand following the seashore.
