Excursion: BirdTrek to the Pond of Maestrale

Birdwatching excursion that takes place in the first backdunal pond of Porto Pino, namely the Mistral pond. The stagnal system present in this important wetland shows how the Porto Pino beach has regressed over millions of years, starting precisely from the Mistral pond to reach its current position.

The Pond of Maestrale, despite its adjacency with other ponds, is distinguished by the presence of some distinctive observable species. Among the observable species we find, in fact, also the Great Crested Grebe and the Fratino.

This pond is also important because in it there is the first dewatering pump, which pushes the brackish water through the other ponds until it reaches the active salt pans of Sant’Antioco.
