The “Pantano dell’Istmo” of Vulcano is one of two small coastal wetlands currently occurring on the Aeolian Islands. Although strongly threatened by the massive urban expansion that, since the sixties of 20th century, has involved the surrounding area, the lagoon shows signs of partial and spontaneous recovery. It represents today an important refuge for several migratory waterbirds, such as Greater Flamingo, Gadwall, Pintail, Moorhen, Coot, Black-winged Stilt, Dotterel, Dunlin, and Ruff, which have been recorded or confirmed exclusively for this site.
