Visual tracking data, tern species, Coquet colonies (2009 to 2011) 2011

Abstract

This resource includes a series of spreadsheets which provide visual tracking data from Coquet Island Special Protection Area (SPA), for Arctic, common, roseate, and Sandwich terns. The data cover the breeding seasons between 2009 and 2011, including incubation and chick-rearing periods.

These data were collected as part of a wider JNCC marine SPA identification programme, in conjunction with the four country nature conservation bodies (CNCBs). The data were used to quantify usage of the marine environment by the four larger tern Sterna species around their breeding colony SPAs in the UK.

These data must be used in conjunction with JNCC Report No. 500: Quantifying usage of the marine environment by terns Sterna sp. around their breeding colony SPAs (Wilson et al. 2014).
