We present the
results of a breeding census of Dupont’s Lark carried out in the Autonomous Community
of Valencia in 2011 using the mapping method and an analysis of the recent trend
for this population. The population was estimated at 44-47 males, located in
five habitat patches of the Rincón de Ademuz, in zones where the species had
been detected previously. Density in these patches fits within values expected
according to the relation between patch size and density found in the
populations of the nearby provinces. Comparison to previous studies reveals
that population of Valencia
has suffered an annual
decline rate of around
10% on average, thus the
implementation of a conservation plan is required to ensure the survival of the
species in the study area.
