With its extensive reedbeds and a modest waters depth, Oasis la Valle is an important site located in a strategic position along the migratory routes from Europe to Africa and offers to many species an ideal place for resting and breeding. Every season of the year is interesting. In winter thousands of water birds arrive from northern Europe for wintering like Common Pochard, Eurasian Wigeon and Ferruginous Duck. In spring the first african migrants arrive for nesting here during the summer, amongs these: Purple Heron, Squacco Heron, Black-crowned Night-Heron, Cattle Egret and Little Bittern. In autumn, in the evening, the reedbeds are populated by Common Starling and swallows ready for the migration. Also Osprey and Common Kingfisher can be observed.
