SPOONBILL_VLAANDEREN - Eurasian spoonbills (Platalea leucorodia, Threskiornithidae) in Flanders (Belgium) 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 SPOONBILL_VLAANDEREN, using trackers developed by Ornitela (https://www.ornitela.com). The study has been operational since 2022. In total 5 individuals of Eurasian spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia) have been tagged at several locations in Flanders (Belgium), mainly to study their flight behaviour in a hostile environment of wind turbines and high-voltage power lines. Data are automatically synced with Movebank and from there periodically archived on Zenodo (see https://github.com/inbo/bird-tracking).
