Bocca Caset. Flying over the Alps
This route is ideal for families with children: it’s short, it’s undemanding and it’s got a nice treat at the end!
Migratory birds fly over Valle di Ledro twice a year, when they migrate to Africa in Autumn and when they come back to Europe in Spring. At the ornithological centre in Caset, birds get caught in nets, they are marked with a ring and then freed again. This gives researchers (and visitors) the opportunity to observe birds up close and to monitor their migratory habits.
