The rain we had recently have flooded large areas of the marshes and that is encouraging more and more birds to join the colony and start breeding, a bit later than usual, but numbers increase day by day. Glossy ibis, purple heron, squacco heron, little egret, cattle egret, night heron are the most abundant breeding species, but others like purple swamphen, great reed warbler, little egret, greater flamingo, black winged stilt, little grebe, red crested pochard, gadwall and common kestrels are also common. Littel bittern can also be seen with a bit of luck.
