Dataset Open Access
The Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus tundrius) population in South Greenland has been monitored annually 1981-2018 (except 1993 and 2004). At visits to known breeding sites we recorded presence/absence of territorial falcons as well as their breeding outputs (number of eggs and/or young).
The file named S_Greenland_Peregrine_monitoring_data.csv contains the raw data from 725 site checks (sometimes several per site per year).
The file named S_Greenland_Summary_occupancy_and_productivity.csv contains a summary of the raw data, providing annual estimates of occupancy, productivity and average brood size.
The respective ReadMe files specify the contents.
