Birdwatching (the observation and the study of birds) is an activity that involves both adults and kids, and it's practicable all the year long.

Mugello, among the many activities that it offers, gives also people the opportunity to practice this curious hobby, in the natural oasis of Gabbianello, near Barberino di Mugello.
The Oasis develops itself among the north est shore of Bilancino lake, on 25 hectares of land, in a protected wetland; and arises as a total environmental restoration surgery aimed at the creation of wetland habitats, which are among the habitats greater risk of death globally in Italy and Europe.
Here it's possible to find numerous species of birds, both resident and migratory; so we can observe the Trabuso, the Observer Goose, the White Stork, the Pink Flamingo and many others.
An easy path also allows the disabled to make the visit.
The Oasis is a visitor center that offers educational tools and where meetings are organized, adult education, school labs. It's also a bookshop nature.
It is also possible to have guided tours, but also to enjoy the landscape or relax ourselves having a picnic with family and friends.

How to get there:
it's easily accessible by car from the A1 (exit at Barberino di Mugello), or via Bolognese following the signs for Barberino di Mugello. Staying on the road to Galliano to turn 65 and after 1 km follow the signs indicative of the Oasis (from the A1 exit about 6 km). The area is accessible by public transport SITA and Line Railway Faentina (to the station of San Piero a Sieve).
