Fife non-breeding bird 5km atlas 1991-99
Records for all non-breeding birds recorded at any time of year 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 85 5x5km squares, including some squares covering sea areas adjacent to the Isle of May.
250 voluntary observers collected some 92,000 records on 168 species. Recording effort was probably greatest around population centres, but this has not been quantified.
The aim of the survey was to build a complete picture of the distribution of birds outwith the breeding season, to complement the Fife tetrad breeding atlas.
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 5km squares 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 5x5 km scale [N.B. these can only be plotted at 10km resolution on the NBN Gateway].
