To estimate breeding population of corn bunting in Wales.
These data have been gathered by trained field-workers and the data are of a high quality. These data have been mapped and checked for sensitivities and typographical/geographical errors
Full survey took place in 1km squares with corn bunting records in Wales since 2000 and the area within a 2km buffer of these (fig.2). A 2km buffer was used to achieve full coverage up to this distance given available resources. The full survey was based on three morning visits: one in each of in each of May, June and July at least two weeks apart following Gilbert et al (1998). The population size was the maximum number of singing (=territorial) males on any one visit.
