Coordinates : 41.73852,12.251038 (Open in Google Maps)

Subjects : Birds, 204 species observed (as of 2008), virtually all the species that live near water. Among the rare nesting species such as the purple heron (here with the most important colony of New York), easily observable with, among others, Little Grebe, Little Bittern, Little Crake, Marsh Harrier, mute swan and many waders and ducks , such as the rare ferruginous ... Full list at the link www.lipuostia.it / chm / avifauna.htm.

Recommended equipment : You can stop just inside the three huts, the first and the second offering a great view of the pond but usually very distant subjects (400mm or more). From the third hut, open all year round except during nesting (usually from early April to mid-July) with a little 'luck you can enjoy subjects closer (300mm).

Best months : Photo opportunities throughout the year, waders during the dry season, during migratory seasons "shoulder".

How to get there : From Rome, Rome Fiumicino and then follow highway E80 to Ostia. Taking the viaduct because of Scafa bypass the archaeological remains of the port of Trajan and is left to the left dell'sola Sacra necropolis. Turn to right by Tancred of Chiaraluce just passed the Tiber (on the right Boacciana Tower), continue holding the right until you reach via seaplane. At the second roundabout on the right you can see the St Michael's Tower (designed by Michelangelo), on the left you enter the tourist port of Ostia, in which is situated the Visitor Center CHM.

Visits : Free admission. Guided tour every Saturday morning 9.30 am from the Visitor Center (wooden chalets) in the parking lot of the Port of Ostia Lido, Via Idroscalo. Tel / fax: 065 618 826. Open Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 9:00 to 13:00. Other options and times on request. The photographers are enrolled in LIPU and registered with the CHM enjoy almost totally free access to the three huts. Other initiatives specifically aimed at photographers (eg slits at ground level, stalking) are under consideration. I will give notice promptly.

Notes : Some photos here: http://chmlipumostra.weebly.com/ Very active facebook group "Habitat Centre Mediterranean LIPU Ostia." The area has for decades been abandoned to decay and occupied by illegal structures. Here November 2, 1975 Pier Paolo Pasolini he died and the monument built in memory of her, surrounded by waste, was for years the symbol of the degradation of the area. Born, as an alternative to a devastating oceanarium, after a battle environmentalist carried out by LIPU Ostia in the mid '90s, the design of CHM was later supplemented by the government to the new tourist port of Rome, with important functions of environmental mitigation and compensation . Today, the CHM is a challenge won, where, instead of a landfill, was created a beautiful natural area, able to attract an increasing number of visitors.
