Fife breeding bird tetrad atlas 1991-99
All breeding birds recorded during the 9 survey years
All records come from the Fife Recording area (see <a href=" http://www.thesoc.myzen.co.uk/soc-recorders.htm">http://www.thesoc.myzen.co.uk/soc-recorders.htm</a>). The survey covered all 391 Fife tetrads, including the Isle of May and Inchkeith. 250 volunteers collected over 50,000 records of 128 species. These are presented here as maximum breeding status for each species in each tetrad over the survey period, reducing the number of individual records to 17,477. No attempt has been made to analyse recording effort, but it was thought to be good across the whole area. Records of species present during the breeding season, but not showing evidence of confirmed, probable or possible breeding (e.g. Red-throated Divers off-shore) have been EXCLUDED from the dataset.
The aim of the survey was to build a complete picture of the breeding distribution of birds in Fife at tetrad scale.
The data are of high quality, having been checked and verified by the Local Recorder and the FOAG Atlas Working Groups.
Data were collected during systematic surveys of all the tetrads in the Fife recording area. All records have been validated by the respective Local Bird Recorders, Fife Nature (known as Fife Environmental Recording Network) and/or the Fife Ornithological Atlas Group, FOAG Atlas working group. All records are geo-referenced at 2x2 km scale
