MH_WATERLAND - Western marsh harriers (Circus aeruginosus, Accipitridae) breeding near the Belgium-Netherlands border
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. 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.
