Description
MH_WATERLAND - Western marsh harriers (Circus aeruginosus, Accipitridae) breeding near the Belgium-Netherlands border is a bird tracking dataset published by the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO). It contains animal tracking data collected by the LifeWatch GPS tracking network for large birds (http://lifewatch.be/en/gps-tracking-network-large-birds) for the project/study MH_WATERLAND, using trackers developed by the University of Amsterdam Bird Tracking System (UvA-BiTS, http://www.uva-bits.nl). The study was operational from 2013 until 2018. In total 7 individuals of Western marsh harrier (Circus aeruginosus) have been tagged in their breeding area near the Belgium-Netherlands border (provinces of East Flanders in Belgium and Zeeland in the Netherlands), mainly to study their habitat use and migration behaviour. more

Data are uploaded from the UvA-BiTS database to Movebank and from there archived on Zenodo (see https://github.com/inbo/bird-tracking). No new data are expected.


See Milotic et al. (2020, https://doi.org/10.3897/zookeys.947.52570) for a more detailed description of this dataset.


Data in this package are exported from Movebank study MH_WATERLAND - Western marsh harriers (Circus aeruginosus, Accipitridae) breeding near the Belgium-Netherlands border (Movebank Study ID 604806671), which can be viewed at https://www.movebank.org/cms/webapp?gwt_fragment=page=studies,path=study604806671.
