For those who love bird watching or wildlife photography, there’s the wetland zone of the San Francisco reed grove, in the vicinity of Desenzano del Garda, a few meters from the Camping San Francesco. It is the 5th wetland in the province of Brescia. The Desenzano reed grove is the largest on lake Garda, extending for approximately 5 hectares in the area between highway 11 and the edge of Sirmione.
The nesting ground of the fistone turco, originally from Sardegna, is found here, in addition to another fifty species such as egrets, white herons, grey parrots, ciuffetti, etc. A bird-watching observation tower is also available here.
