1994-2021 Capercaillie Brood Counts Data, Scotland
This dataset contains records of capercaillie hens and their broods. RSPB and NatureScot agree a list of woodlands to be surveyed each year. Data is also passed on from privtate estates that contract out this work for thier land (e.g. GWCT complete some of these contracts). These surveys take place between July and August using pointer dogs to locate hens with broods in order to monitor productivity. The dataset also contains data on broodless hens and males found during these systematic brood counts.
Note - due to COVID-19 restrictions, there were no brood count surveys carried out in 2020.
These data have been gathered by trained field-workers so the data are of high quality.
