Fauna

 

As in all wetlands, the main attraction of La Gola is the birdlife that can be seen there.  This can be abundant during certain seasons, and sometimes with little surprises.
Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos), Moorhen (Gallinula chloropus) and Little Egret (Egretta garzetta), are the park regulars, but also Sardinian Warbler (Sylvia melanocephala),  Serin (Serinus serinus), Blackbird (Turdus merula), Crossbill (Loxia curvirostra), Yellow Wagtail (Motacilla flava), or Wood Pigeon (Columba palumbus) can be heard or seen while we walk through the park itinerary.

 

 

Up until now around 65 species of birds have been seen at some time at this peculiar place.
Other groups such as fish and arthropods can been seen at La Gola. Mullet (Chelon labrosus), Sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) or Eel (Anguilla anguilla) make up the regular ichthyofauna of the park. On another note, many species of insect are just beginning to become apparent in the park thanks mainly to photographic activities organised by the OTC. Various butterfly species, dragonflies, bees, flies and beetles have been identified this way.
