Nature Hot Spot:
Lake Kaltern (Bolzano, South Tyrol)
One of the biggest lakes in the area of South Tyrol is Lake Kaltern (Lago di Caldero, Kalterersee). It is an outstanding biotope, and plays a very important role as a resting spot for migratory birds, while certainly not less important as a spot for breeding birds, with a huge variety of species breeding here as well. The day I went to visit the lake was unfortunately a quite hot one, and the afternoon I was visiting the area, I was hardly able to see any birds. I still managed to capture a nice shot of a wall lizard, that I simply could not hide :) .
