The first visit for the census of breeding pairs of lesser kestrels in the 19 urban ZEPAs was made in April during the pre-laying period. The second visit, which coincided with the presence of chicks in the nests, was concluded in June.
In early July we begin the third census visit, which will allow us to confirm the results of the June count and locate late pairs.
After the second census the fall in population of some ZEPAs was confirmed but also the stability or even increase in others. In any case it will be after the end of the third census visits when we will be able to draw the first conclusions on the population of the lesser kestrel in the urban ZEPAs of Extremadura.
