1994-2021 Capercaillie Cold Searches Data, Scotland
This dataset contains records of capercaillie and their signs (e.g. droppings, feathers etc) recorded during cold searches for leks between mid-March and late May. Cold searches are done on both a pro-active and re-active basis and take place in potentially suitable capercaillie habitat, that falls outside of the standard lek surveys. This dataset also includes droppings and feathers located during lek surveys (early morning between late April and early May).
COVID-19 restrictions limited survey season in 2020. Therefore, there are only a limited number of records from 2020.
These data have been gathered by trained field-workers so the data are of high quality.
