Lake Como and lesser lakes of Lombardy

Hello,
ciao a tutti, I will write in English in case non italian speakers are interested in the topic
I would like to start birdwatching in Lombardy, especially raptors like "pojana" (should be "ret tailed hawk") and lake birds, like coots, and so on. I am planning to watch them especially around lake Como, Pusiano, Annone, etc.
Any suggestions? By the way if you have a group there perhaps I could join

I don't know any locations (best of luck though), but I think you mean Common Buzzard or one of its subspecies, or something similar? Red-tailed Hawks don't occur in Europe. Anyway, I think there are some others here who can help you with locations.

Yes that's the one "poiana" or "pojana" in Italian. Common buzzard must be the english name
