Subjects : The Patanella Forest is an oase established in 1998 by the WWF and is located within the Orbetello Lagunadi Nature Reserve. It has trails along the Ponente lagoon and a couple of huts overlooking the lagoon itself; especially the possibility to photograph it rich birdlife, which includes the sea eagle and, above all, a group of flamingos, now stationary. Also interesting is the flora of the forest. It is also possible to photograph both the sunset, as the sun falls right in front of the huts, and also partly also the sunrise, with the reflections of the sun on the lagoon.

Recommended equipment : Given the breadth of the shots that can be made, according to their inclinations and preferences, both the wide corners for the landscape, as are the canvases and super canvases for the fauna; With macros you can take shots at the flora. I also used the easel.

Best months : The area is heavily touristy, so I would advise against July and August for this reason; all the other months; Since September many passing flamingos are added to the sedentary ones and all the following months are useful from this point of view.

How to get there : The Oase of the Orbetello Lagoon is located in Tuscany, along the Tyrrhenian coast in the municipality of Orbetello (GR). Entrance to Km 148 of s.s. 1 Aurelia. Albinia or Orbetello railway station. For the Casale della Giannella (Environmental Education Center "A. Peccei") exited from s.s. 1 Aurelia, directions for P.S. Stefano- Orbetello, you walk the Giannella to the Km 4It comes easily from Aurelia, turning at the junction for Patanella, between Albinia and Albinia and Orbetello. Outside of the tourist-intensive periods, good parking possibilities right at the entrance to the Oase.

Visits : Admission is free. The oase includes three routes: the Ornithological Trail, which can be run from September to April, both freely and with a guided tour; allows the observation of birdlife and is the most interesting from a photographic point of view; the Patanella Forest Trail, where there is a botanical path, the Hiking Trail, which connects the Ceriolo visitor centre with the Patanella Forest that crosses various environments and you can walk all year round, only with a guided tour on Booking.

Notes : The Bosco allows an extraordinary and quiet walk along the edge of the Orbetello Lagoon, in front of the scenery of the headland of the Silver, pleasant even regardless of photographic interests. Keep in mind that dogs are not allowed in the Oase and that the use of bicycles is also prohibited.
