The River Coghinas and lagoon at La Foce provides home and nesting sites for many diverse species of birds. Depending on the season there are always birds present along the water course, and occasionally we are lucky to have rare visitors to the area stop over here en-route to their summer or winter nesting grounds.

Bird Watching.

There are ample opportunities for bird watching along the River Coghinas. On both banks it is possible to access the river to observe the birds in their natural environment. Or, a gentle stroll along the bank from Giosue's kiosk will bring you to an area of wet land teeming with numerous birds rangeing from Sardinian Warblers to Marsh Harriers, gulls and our colourful Bee-eaters. With a little patience, a pair of binoculars and a camera, a very pleasent time can be spent watching the bird life.

Boat Excursions

Spend a couple of hours, courtesy of Giosue, travelling slowly up river for about 6 kms. Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature at it's best. Abundant with bird life and bird song, cattle and sheep grazing at the waters edge. If you are very lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the cinghale (wild boar) and piglets!
Giosue will keep you informed on all species of bird life seen, and where possible you will have photo opportunites. Binoculars are provided on these trips.
On the return journey of an evening excursion, take delight in our stunning sunsets. These are something not to be missed. Rich in colour and intensity, truly a beautiful sight!

Wild-life Photography.

There are many places to sit and observe the natural behaviour of the birds and wild-life along the River Coghinas,
and are quiet enough to be able to take a wide variety of pictures with out disturbing the wild-life it's self.
