Description

Riserva Naturale Statale Gola del Furlo is crossed by the Candigliano river that creeps between the imposing rock walls of the Furlo Gorge.  A pair of Golden Eagle and Peregrine Falcon nest here on the walls of Mount Paganuccio. On and around the river you can find numerous gulls, but also birds like Common KingfisherGrey HeronGreat CormorantEurasian MoorhenBlack-crowned Night-Heron and Little Egret. The Alpine Swift finds in the gorge one of the few breeding sites of the entire Marche region. To be investigated in winter is the presence of Wallcreeper. Also in winter, the presence of Alpine Accentor is possible. The summit meadows see at the end of summer sometimes Dotterel. But the summit grasslands and the woods hold also many other birds. See the birdlist below.
