Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia in the south of the island has a very large wetlands area on its south-western outskirts. Much is used by the salt works, and it is thus often too saline. But the southern most part (shown on the map just above the name Residenza del Sole) is now a nature reserve with a hide and a somewhat protected (blinded) access.
Birds you can see here include:
There are other ponds to the north that may be excellent for birds at times, but much is either inaccessible, or there is no place to park your car on the very busy roads. So be careful, but try to explore what is possible.
There are also some ponds along the Dorsale Consortile road (not shown on the map), and a left turn across a bridge from that road may provide better views into the far (north) side of the reserve.

Access and Facilities
Access is from the southbound (only!) lane of the road to Pula. Immediately after the turnoff to the Dorsale Consortile road (which leads into a major industrial area) turn right on to a dirt road that leads into the reserve.
