In the face of the dramatic worldwide decline of farmland bird populations, the preservation of fallow fields is a conservation measure encouraged through subsidies (e.g. agri‐environmental schemes, AES).

We used occurrence data from three steppe bird species protected at the EU level (Stone Curlew Burhinus...
