Oasi naturale delle pittime di Cascina Oschiena

Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


An area of about 25 hectares of stable rice paddy has been transformed into a semi-natural wetland characterized by shallow waters and flooded grasslands in order to favor the nesting of Pittima real, Cavaliere d’Italia, Pavoncella and other water birds. The area is home to the only Italian nesting site for pittime reale.
