The Lesser Kestrel () is a globally threatened species. We studied the population dynamics of nesting Lesser Kestrels at the aqueduct of Zaghouan (Tunisia). Our results suggest that the number of nesting pairs at this site has decreased significantly from year to year. This is primarily due to destruction or modification of nest sites during restoration of the aqueduct. The protection and the restoration of their habitat, especially of breeding sites, as well as the installation of additional nesting sites, constitute the principal conservation measures proposed for this species in Tunisia.

Le faucon crécerellette (Falco naumanni) est une espèce globalement menacée. Nous avons étudié la dynamique de la population de Zaghouan (Tunisie). Nos résultats suggèrent que le nombre des couples nicheuses à l'Aqueduc diminue significativement d'une année à une autre. Ce résultat serait du à la destruction ou la modification des habitats du fait des travaux de restauration de l'Aqueduc. La protection et la restauration des habitats et des sites de reproduction en particulier ainsi que l'aménagement des sites de nidification constituent les principales mesures proposés pour la conservation de l'espèce en Tunisie.
