CURLEW_VLAANDEREN - Eurasian curlews (Numenius arquata, Scolopacidae) breeding 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 CURLEW_VLAANDEREN, using trackers developed by Ornitela (https://www.ornitela.com). The study has been operational since 2020. In total 5 individuals of Eurasian curlew (Numenius arquata) have been tagged at several locations in Flanders (Belgium), mainly to study their habitat use and migration behaviour. Data are automatically synced with Movebank and from there periodically archived on Zenodo (see https://github.com/inbo/bird-tracking).
