Description

The area that affects the reserve is mainly made up of reeds and stretches of water surrounded by cultivated fields or man-made artifacts (roads, houses). One part is in direct contact with Lake Iseo and is called the razor blade; then there is an internal part, made up of large tanks interspersed with thin earth embankments, called lama and another area with rectangular tanks obtained from the excavation of the peat, which ceased in the 1950s. Since then, nature has recolonized the bodies of water. The banks, dominated by the ancient Romanesque monastery of San Pietro in Lamosa, were covered with marsh vegetation: water lilies, rife, marsh reeds and sedges, according to the different depth of the waters, which, however, does not exceed 2.5 m.
The different characteristics of the marshy environments allow the life of a very rich birdlife, made up of anatidae, such as the marzaiola, slow, like the porciglione, and various species of small marsh birds including the rare salciaiola. On willows that grow on arginelli it is not uncommon to find the curious pendulum nest.
A nature trail, equipped with a hanging walkway, allows an adequate visit to the area.
