ROC RSPB Farmland Species Survey Dataset
Records taken from ROC Annual Reports in response to a request for information from the RSPB for information about selected farmland species. The Reports were compiled from ROC members' notes submitted for this purpose. ROC are using this as a trial dataset prior to uploading more recent, detailed data for all species.
Largely confined to Borough of Rossendale in Lancashire, with some records from locations just over the border into neighbouring boroughs. Rossendale comprises parts of 10Km squares SD71, SD72, SD81 and SD82.
To assist with RSPB project concerning farmland birds.
A large proportion of the records have dates covering several months (e.g. April to June) to indicate the breeding season where specific dates were nor present in the summarised report. Correct identification has been assumed as the species are not difficult ones. Grid References have been checked. Many are at 100m precision but some (e.g. reservoirs, moorland) are at 1Km precision.
Most records were reverse-engineered from summary data in published bird reports. A small number comprise individual records submitted by members.
