Rinalda Heronry

The Rinalda heronry, located in Candia, with its 37 hectares is a small wetland, fed by fountains and crossed by numerous irrigation canals. A consistent colony of night herons and egrets nests here, but the diversification of the environments also offers refuge to other species of birds, such as the green woodpecker, which is now rare in the Po Valley.

Here as well we find an ornithofauna typical of the lowland areas, including the little grebe, the coot and the little bittern.
