1994 - 2020 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. These surveys take place between June ñ 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 and therefore no data for this year.
These data have been gathered by trained field-workers so the data are of high quality.
