One of my favorite places to visit

The Hula valley nature reserve it doesn't matter what time of year you go there is always things to see and also its just a lovely walk.

Tens of thousands of birds of over 200 species, including cranes, storks, pelicans, cormorants and egrets, stay in the reserve, knowing they can find an abundance of food here and in the Hula Valley in general. The reserve also shelters rare aquatic plants, such as yellow flag, paper reed and white water-lily. Water buffalo's graze in certain areas to preserve the open meadow environment. Species that have become extinct in the wild, such as the white-tailed eagle, are also reintroduced in the reserve.
The reserve has paths, a ‘floating bridge’ over the swamp, and blinds from which to observe the birds.

  1. Thanks for this. It's always far more interesting learning about anoyher country from one who lives there rather than just looking at pictures. I love to see glimpses of your daily life. Joan
