A study about Peregrine and Lanner falcons was carried out in Ascoli Piceno district. In 2007, 16 pairs of Peregrine and one pair of Lanner were found. Peregrines prefer tall and dominant rockwalls. The presence of secondary roads and isolated houses seems to favour the falcons, probably due to the higher number of prey in the vicinity.
