Description

H_GRONINGEN - Western marsh harriers (Circus aeruginosus, Accipitridae) breeding in Groningen (the Netherlands) is a bird tracking dataset collected by the Grauwe kiekendief - Kenniscentrum Akkervogels (GKA) / Dutch Montagu’s Harrier Foundation and published by the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO). It contains animal tracking data collected for the project/study H_GRONINGEN, using trackers developed by the University of Amsterdam Bird Tracking System (UvA-BiTS, http://www.uva-bits.nl). The study was operational from 2012 until 2018. In total 4 individuals of Western marsh harriers (Circus aeruginosus) have been tagged in their breeding area in the province Groningen (the Netherlands) close to the Netherlands-Germany border, mainly to study their habitat use and migration behaviour. Data from active or new trackers are periodically uploaded from the UvA-BiTS database to Movebank (see https://github.com/inbo/bird-tracking) and then Zenodo, but for this study none of the tracked birds have been observed in the vicinity of their known breeding grounds (and thus data retrieval points) since 2018.
