Description

HG_OOSTENDE - Herring gulls (Larus argentatus, Laridae) breeding at the southern North Sea coast (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 HG_OOSTENDE, using trackers developed by the University of Amsterdam Bird Tracking System (UvA-BiTS, http://www.uva-bits.nl). The study has been operational since 2013. In total 60 individuals of European Herring gull (Larus argentatus) have been tagged in or near their breeding area at the southern North Sea coast (Ostend and Zeebrugge in Belgium), mainly to study their habitat use. 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. An older version of this dataset has been described in Stienen et al. (2016, https://doi.org/10.3897/zookeys.555.6173).

Data in this package are exported from Movebank study HG_OOSTENDE - Herring gulls (Larus argentatus, Laridae) breeding at the southern North Sea coast (Belgium) (Movebank Study ID 986040562), which can be viewed at https://www.movebank.org/cms/webapp?gwt_fragment=page=studies,path=study986040562. Attributes in the data files are defined in the README.txt, in the NERC Vocabulary Server at http://vocab.nerc.ac.uk/collection/MVB and in the Movebank Attribute Dictionary at www.movebank.org/node/2381.
